Data Science Online Summer Camp

What are the things that power our world? Food, oil, money? Yes, all of those, but also data!

Data drives your recommendations on Netflix, your fitness report on your phone, and the price you pay when you get a taxi home. Data scientists are the people who make this happen.

In this course, find out what data scientists do. Then get some data and build machine learning models using Python to make recommendations and predictions. The course uses Python, which is the most used language for professional data science.

Description

In this online summer camp for teenagers with some coding experience, gain hands-on experience in using computers to make predictions and decisions with the Python programming language.

Detail

The Data Problem

We will use case studies to understand the challenges that organisations such as Netflix and Miniclip face and how they use data to help.

A Day in the Life of a Data Scientist

You will think through some data challenges and we will talk about how data scientists work to solve these.

Working with Data

You will learn about manipulating data with code, dealing with messy data and handling large data sets using spreadsheets and Python code.

Learning from Data

You will explore how learning from data can be achieved by using some simple statistics and charts to make predictions from a small set of data.

Classification and Regression

You will use the most popular algorithms to carry out these key machine learning activities using Python code. You will use the resulting models to make predictions and measure how successful these predictions are.

Statistical Visualisation

You will learn how use statistical visualisations to display patterns in the data using Python code.

Competition

Competitions are a popular way for data scientists to refine their skills. You will be given a machine learning task and compete against fellow students to build the best prediction model.
