About this Event

Description

Part 3/3 of Introduction to Machine Learning Course

This unique session is based on a book (Mathematical foundations of Data Science). A copy of the book (in draft printed form) will be provided in the session to each participant. After the session, we will run a slack channel for support queries from the participants.

The two-hour workshop is designed to introduce you to machine learning and deep learning based on high school maths foundations (GCSE/A levels maths). The session (and book) bridge the gap between high school maths and machine learning. Specifically, we use a foundation of Linear Algebra, Probability theory, Optimization and Partial differentiation to introduce you to machine learning and deep learning. The book is free to all workshop participants.
