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
This workshop will be run over the course of two evenings: Tuesday, September 18th from 6:00pm - 9:00pm and Thursday, September 20th from 6:00pm - 9:00pm.
