Data Science & Entrepreneurship Bootcamp l SU Launchlab

01 Apr 2022 (8:00 AM) - 31 May 2022 (5:00 PM)

Presented by SU Launchlab:

The program is presented through interesting lectures, case studies and assignments directed by experts.

The following topics are covered:

  • Understanding the “World of Data”: what exactly is data science, machine learning (ML), AI, big data,  and how do they all fit together

  • ML techniques and algorithms: unsupervised learning, supervised learning, and an intro to deep learning and neural networks

  • ML in Python: learn all the different tools and libraries in Python which can accelerate your ML models

  • Understanding and building a ML pipeline: from data sourcing to building your own ML models from scratch

  • How to effectively approach a data-related problem

  • How to most effectively interpret results from your data and communicate these results

  • Identifying business use cases for data science and ML through doing interesting case studies and projects

  • Other tech soft skills: SCRUM, Agile, & Kanban

  • Interesting guest lectures on ML and data science in industry

  • Entrepreneurship: design thinking, lean startup and entrepreneurial development techniques

The program is open to anyone. The course is coding-intensive, thus we recommend that participants understand programming fundamentals – but the language itself doesn’t matter. NO prior experience with Python or machine learning is required – that’s why we’re here!
