Short Course 2: Fundamentals of Data Science (On-site Rate)




Instructor: Juan Esteban Díaz Leiva


Data are everywhere and come in overwhelming quantities. Thus, being able to extract relevant information from them has become an essential ability. Machine learning allows us to do this by granting us “superpowers”, such as seeing in more than 3 dimensions or recognizing patterns when dealing with millions of variables. Here we will introduce this branch of artificial intelligence, briefly review its main areas, and finally focus on regression and clustering, which are two of the most used tools from supervised and unsupervised learning, respectively.
