Timeline of the Course
In the first week, we will learn how to think like a data scientist. With the right mindset, a lot of rookie mistakes can be easily avoided. Assignments will test your statistical thinking and improve your mindset.
Data Science is 80% Data Cleaning and 20% Machine Learning. In this week, we will learn the fundamentals of the "80%". We will use the Pandas library to achieve this goal. Assignments will use real-life datasets.
Data Visualization allows us to explore the data visually and also impress the management.
We will use Seaborn and Plotly for visualization.
Assignment will focus on storytelling with data visualization methods.
Most problems in Data Science can be solved with classical machine learning methods. This week, we will explore techniques such as Linear Regression and Random Forest to address a wide range of problems. Scikit-Learn will help us save time implementing such algorithms.
Week 5 - 23.04

Why make this course?
The rise of Covid-19 in Austria has led to the cancellation of many events such as MLGraz Meetup & Linuxtage Graz.
A lot of organizations are advocating home office during this period. Furthermore, the number of tech events canceled is increasing evermore. During this time of crisis, we see this as an excellent opportunity for you to grow your skillset.
We believe, everyone should get an opportunity to continue learning and building their skillset. As the leading AI community in Graz, we see our responsibility to provide a platform for fellow Styrians to grow. This led us to create this online course.
