Description

Ladies Learning Code. Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. Using Data for Beinners



Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are all around us - from Siri on your iPhone to Google Map suggestions, to recommendations for purchases during your Amazon check-out. While many of us may think AI and machine learning mean more robots and self-driving cars, at a fundamental level, they are about data - and ways to make meaning of data.


In this workshop, we’ll use a hands-on project based approach to learn how to put data to use for us in our everyday lives. During the session, you’ll learn the following:


  • An introduction to the history of artificial intelligence and machine learning, what they mean and why it matters

  • An introduction to data and strategies for collection, preparation, manipulation and analysis of data

  • An introduction to machine learning models and predictive data

  • Build your very own machine learning model to evaluate data that’s interesting to you

  • What resources are available if you’d like to continue learning at home (and we think you will) and career opportunities available in the fields of AI and machine learning
