Automated machine learning (partially) replaces the data scientist by automatically identifying nearly optimal machine learning strategies for a wide set of problems.
During this data science night, we explore auto-sklearn through multiple toy data sets. auto-sklearn is a free academic software, which has won several competitions on automated machine learning.
After some socializing, the data science night will directly proceed with work in groups (note: no lecture during summer).
Recommended: Install auto-sklearn prior the data science night (which requires Linux or a virtual box with Linux). https://automl.github.io/auto-sklearn/master/installation.html
