This is a two day immersion in machine learning!  The format will be lectures and workshops so that you will get the chance to try out everything you learn. We’ll be using Python’s scikit-learn and Keras.

The focus will be on getting a good overview of machine learning - we’ll cover the basics of scientific Python, regression, classification, clustering and deep learning with neural networks. All of the lectures will be in English. Looking to get into this exciting field? Now is your chance!

Who is running the course?

We’re a Swedish computer science education company and have run many courses in Sweden and Finland. However it is a bit cold here in March so we’re also running courses in the place with arguably the world’s best climate: Gran Canaria! Our teachers are a combination of scientists and professional data scientists. We look forward to meeting you!

What will I learn?

The course will give introductions to the following topics:

  • Scientific Python

  • Regression

  • Classification

  • Clustering

  • Deep learning with neural networks

Do I need to be a professional developer to join?

Absolutely not! This is an open level course. Those relatively new to programming might find it helpful to study a little Python before arriving - let us know when you sign up and we can help you get started.

What’s Included

  • Two full days of lectures and workshops

Do I need to prepare?
