Intro to Data Visualization & Machine Learning

(encore workshop by popular demand)

Google’s Deep Dream and Neural Nets are all the rage these days. “Data Scientist” is a legitimate occupation. But what are these things and what are some of the basic tools of the trade? Dan Van Boxel from “Dan Does Data” will demonstrate and guide you through some simple data visualization tools using an Ipython notebook in SageMathCloud. Then, we’ll explore what “neural networks” are at a high level, and some software like Google’s “TensorFlow” for implementing them.

Bring a laptop to follow along and bring your own data set if you want it examined, or help others visualize theirs!
