Python for data science, machine learning, and scientific computing (PDMS01)

23 September 2019 - 27 September 2019

£275.00 - £550

Course Overview:

Python is one of the most widely used and highly valued programming languages in the world, and is especially widely used in data science, machine learning, and in other scientific computing applications. This course provides both a general introduction to programming with Python and a comprehensive introduction to using Python for data science, machine learning, and scientific computing. The major topics that we will cover include the following: the fundamentals of general purpose programming in Python; using Jupyter notebooks as a reproducible interactive Python programming environment; numerical computing using numpy; data processing and manipulations using pandas; data visualization using matplotlib, seaborn, ggplot, bokeh, altair, etc; symbolic mathematics using sympy; data science and machine learning using scikit-learn, keras, and tensorflow; Bayesian modelling using PyMC3 and PyStan; high performance computing with Cython, Numba, IPyParallel, Dask. Overall, this course aims to provide a solid introduction to Python generally as a programming language, and to its principal tools for doing data science, machine learning, and scientific computing. (Note that this course will focus on Python 3 exclusively given that Python 2 has now reached it end of life).

 

Intended Audience

This course is aimed at anyone who is interested in learning the fundamentals of Python generally and especially how
Python can be used for data science, broadly defined. Python and Python based data science is applicable to academic
research in all fields of science and engineering as well as data intensive industries and services such as finance,
pharmaceuticals, healthcare, IT, and manufacturing.
