Details

Machine Learning with Python is a new course organized by the Austin ACM SIGKDD Chapter. The course consists of 11 sessions that will cover the main concepts of Machine Learning, and it will be taught by a group of 10 instructors.

We will use the following book as a reference "Building Machine Learning Systems with Python" by Willi Richert and Luis Pedro Coelho. However, we are not planning to cover each and every topic/section in the book. The instructors may use other references and bring new materials.

The topic of this lecture is "Working with Big Data" presented by Chance Coble.

An official ACM certificate will be awarded to those who complete the course. In order to qualify, you need to attend at least 7 sessions.

Visa (12301 Research Blvd, Bldg 3, Austin, TX 78759) will sponsor the classes and provide pizza and drinks.

Parking is available in front of the Visa building. If you cannot find a spot, you can park in the garage behind the building.
