13:00 – 14:00 Lunch
14:00 – 18:00 Deep Learning on Recommender System
18:00 – 18:30 Questions Time

We will send out the class materials as well as required library 2 weeks before the class, please follow the instruction and get the environment ready before coming to class.

- Data scientist who wants robust or learn more different applications
Analyst: Companies who would like to offer re-education to their analytics team to their data science team or just upgrade yourself from analyst to data scientist.
- Developer, who wants to know more about the algorithm or even think about switching to be the data scientist
- Business Intelligence (BI): You are already familiar with statistics, want to understand better machine learning and prediction

A bit of knowledge of Python or machine learning will help you but it is not required. Have some familiarity with basic programming concepts or languages or statistics. Therefore, experience in Python or Machine Learning is not required but will help.

During the problem-solving sessions, we will solve on the blackboard any kind of problem the audience poses. In a previous workshop, for example, one of the problems was “How can we use Twitter data to predict Bitcoin prices?”. The solution included the full pipeline (from data collection to data storage), to actually solving the problem and hiring the right people. Feel free to contact me with your problems before the workshop date.

“Stylianos brings great enthusiasm to his workshop – his interest in all things AI shines through.” – Tim Gordon, Chief Executive at the Liberal Democrats

“Stylianos’s bespoke workshop allows for in-depth complicated analytical concepts to be understood in a manageable and easy way. Coving the background of the constant changing world of data science and breaking down the key concepts of data science.” – Dominik Byrne, Investor, Entrepreneur, Advisor
