Introduction to Data Science with Python

Have data you wish you could analyse to make informed decisions? Want to learn about putting Data Science in practice but don't know where to begin? You are in the right place! This workshop takes you through the entire Data Science pipeline - exploring data, creating hypotheses, using Machine Learning algorithms, proving and debunking hypotheses and finally, deriving insights from created models. We will be using popular tools in Python like Jupyter, pandas, sklearn and numpy to get a better understanding of the data.

Some amount of exposure to programming is required, especially knowledge of data structures like lists and dictionaries. Familiarity with Data Science tools is not required as that will be covered during the course of the workshop.
