Corporate - Software Engineer Programme - Introduction to Data Science and Machine Learning using Python - Glasgow

    Event Location

  • J.P. Morgan 45 Waterloo St, Glasgow G2 6HS
  • Event Date

  • November 03, 2018 9:00am - 6:00pm GMT
  • Event Description:
    • Held at J.P. Morgan's office and run in collaboration with the Technology division of JPMorgan Chase and Cambridge Spark, this intensive one-day course is designed to teach essential data science skills and advanced machine learning techniques.

      The course is extremely interactive and hands-on, presenting and working through concrete problems using a real-world dataset. You will learn how to clean, explore and visualise real-world data, identify important features and trends, and understand how to develop, evaluate and refine state-of-the-art machine learning models. Then at the end of the day, you will cement your skills by tackling a competition project. After the competition finishes at 6pm, there will be networking drinks.

      No previous experience of Python is required, you will learn the fundamentals on the day.

      Workshop Topics Include:

      - Overview of Machine Learning
      - Exploratory Data Analysis
      - Decision Trees, Random Forests and ensemble models
      - Support Vector Machines
      - Overfitting, bias-variance trade-off, hyperparameter tuning
      - Kaggle-like coding competition

      Pre-requisites: Comfortable with basic programming concepts. Familiarity with Python is a bonus.
