Course Overview:

Integrating machine learning is paramount in organizations nowadays. machine learning engineers and data scientists are now an integral part of the development teams.
Machine Learning projects has some similarities to a standard software development project, so they may seem easy to work through at first. However, the data dependency, the research oriented work and the unknown nature of results imply different work strategies and project design.

This may lead to an expertise deficit which is not always easy to bridge.
Development leader from any level sometimes lack the knowledge about machine learning, and specifically about working through its related projects.
In this intense workshop, we will go through an intro to machine learning, the work of a data scientist, and the inside and outside of a machine learning project which will give the development manager a better understand of this field.

The seminar

In this seminar, we will go through a crash course in machine learning: we will first see an overview of today's advances in machine learning.
Then, we will go through some of the basic of machine learning and data science work, and finally we will do some case studies and try to understand keys and failure points of data projects.

The Goal

This intense workshop is intended for development leaders, who want to know better how to work on a data project.
The workshop participants will gain knowledge on the right way to design, work through and deploy a machine learning project in their organization.
