Intro to Data Science with Python - IBM Presents - Part 1

This event is orginazed for all women in tech Are you interested in Data Science? Are you looking to improve your Data Science skills? Are you thinking of transitioning to Data Science? Come and join us for an Intro to Data Science Workshop with Python. This workshop will cover all the main steps involved in a Data Science Project: from getting the data and cleaning to the use of different machine learning models (including evaluation and prediction). We all know that Data Science is not only about Machine Learning Models. Data Scientists spend over 80% of their time cleaning and exploring the data and only 20% doing Machine Learning (source: https://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/18/technology/for-big-data-scientists-hurdle-to-insights-is-janitor-work.html). That is why we are dividing this workshop into 2 parts: the first part will cover data cleaning, data manipulation, exploration and visualization and the second part will cover Machine Learning algorithms, model evaluation, prediction and how you should communicate the results you get to stakeholders/business people. This will be a hands-on experience and there is no pre-requisite. All levels are welcome! Note: It is good to have jupyter notebook installed (https://jupyter.org/install) but if you don't have it don't worry. Just arrive a few minutes earlier and we can help set it up for you.
