Data science is revolutionizing how scientists and engineers go about their work, but most students have not had much exposure to it. This one-week bootcamp provides an opportunity to get introduced to data management and visualization, data modeling, deep learning, and scientific programming in Python. The bootcamp will consist of morning lectures, followed by hands-on sessions in the afternoon to try out and practice concepts and software tools.
The bootcamp is aimed at undergraduate and graduate students in science and engineering who have an introductory-level familiarity with any computer programming language, or MATLAB, or RStudio, etc. The bootcamp is free of charge, but enrollment is capped so students must apply by May 15, 2019. Students from Agnes Scott, Morehouse, Spelman, and Georgia Tech are particularly encouraged to apply.
Topics: Computer programming in Python for data science, clustering, numerical linear algebra, classification, regression, deep learning, and domain applications
