Upcoming weekend class
1. Data Science with R: Data Analysis
Date: Mar 28rd, April 11, 18, 25, May 2nd
(We take a break on Easter Weekend on April 4th.)
Time: 10am to 5pm

Paul Trowbridge is a adjunct faculty at NYU. Paul has worked on projects in FMRI brain imaging studies, the analysis of international dispute data, experimental psychology, micro-simulation methods in urban planning and urban economics applications, and the epidemiology of Chlymidia.

This intensive class will introduce you to the wonderful wold of R and provide you with an excellent understanding of the language that leaves you with a firm foundation to build upon. From the rudimentary building blocks of programming basics, to data manipulation and use of advanced drawing packages, the course will conclude with a demonstration of a project of your choice on Project Demo Day.

2. Data Science with Python: Data Analysis
Date: Mar 28rd, April 11, 18, 25, May 2nd
(We take a break on Easter Weekend on April 4th.)
Time: 1pm to 5pm

This five week course is an introduction to data analysis with the Python programming language, and is aimed at beginners. We introduce how to work with different data structure in Python. We covered the most popular modules including Numpy, Scipy, Pandas, matplotlib, Seaborn, ggplot and etc to do data analytics and visualization. We use iPython notebook to demonstrate the results of codes and change codes interactively during the class. Our past students include people have no programming experience and people have little exposure by taking Python class at NYU or General Assembly. Students told us our classes are very engaging, interactive, hands-on and have tons of content.

3. Data Science with Python: Machine Learning
Date: Mar 28rd, April 11, 18, 25, May 2nd
(We take a break on Easter Weekend on April 4th.)
Time: 1pm to 5pm

We do hands-on instruction over 30+ functions in scikit-learn library and cover topics as linear regression, multivariate linear regression, Naive Bayes Classifiers, KNN, logistic regression, LDA, Cross-validation, Bootstrap, feature selection, SVM, Decision Tree, PCA and clustering. We build solid foundation for you to advance your data scientist career into senior or manager role.

Meetups

1. Industry experience series: Knewton Data Scientist team
Date: Mar 18, 7-90pm

Chaitanya Ekanadham leads a team of data scientists and analysts developing the core models that power Knewton adaptive learning products. Chaitanya will talk about the Knewton data science team's vision of representing learning experiences, and go into a few specific ways we do that, such as content graphing and measuring student ability.

2. R Machine Learning Class Demo Day (R010 and R012)
Date: Mar 24, 7-9pm

Data Science with R (Data Analysis level) 10th batch and (Data Mining level)(12th batch) are graduating. Their final projects will demonstrate:
1. how to predict condo price in Jersey City using tax assessment data, building data
2. predict conversion rate based on Salesforce application
3. Predict view-ability score for each single impression using DSP log level data

3. Scikit-Learn Workshop by one of core developers - Andreas Mueller
Date: Mar 30, 7-9pm

Scikit-learn is a machine learning library in Python, that has become a valuable tool for many data science practitioners. Andreas Mueller is an Assistant Research Scientist at the NYU Center for Data Science, building a group to work on open source software for data science. This talk will cover some of the more advanced aspects of Scikit-learn, such as building complex machine learning pipelines, model evaluation, parameter search, and out-of-core learning.
