This is an intensive 12-hour course that takes place in four 3-hour sessions over a weekend in January 2019 at the Barcelona GSE's Ciutadella Campus.
The approach is hands-on using Jupyter notebooks. All material is motivated by specific information retrieval and data analysis questions, and each thematic unit concludes with a small project.
The course is evaluated by a 1-hour test that will be carried out at the end of the course.
The course is addressed to:
- Master and PhD students
- Researchers and academics
Participants will get a quick, condensed and hands-on introduction to programming and data analysis with Python, fundamental methods in modern Statistics and Machine Learning and the tools in Python for implementing them.
Please note that participation fees do not include accommodation expenses. Participants must make their own accommodation arrangements. Information and accommodation options are available on the accommodations page.
