KNIME US Data Science Roadshow 2018


The Data Science Learnathon is coming to the US, coast to coast. Learn how to use open source, GUI driven KNIME Analytics Platform. We’ll provide datasets, jump-start workflows, solutions, and of course data science experts. Sign-up now.



The Data Science Learnathon is coming to the US! We’ll be travelling coast to coast, where we’ll meet to learn about, and build workflows.

Knime Roadshow 2018

Cities and dates are:

  • Boston: March 19

  • Denver: April 18
  • Houston: April 19

What is a learnathon? It’s between a hackathon and a workshop. It’s like a workshop because we’ll learn more about the data science cycle - data access, data blending, data preparation, model training, optimization, testing, and deployment. It’s like a hackathon because we’ll work in groups to hack a workflow-based solution to guided exercises.

The tool is the open source, GUI driven KNIME Analytics Platform. If you’re an R or Python expert, though, don’t worry! Because KNIME is open, it offers great integrations with an IDE environment for R, Python, SQL, and Spark.

Each learnathon will begin with an introduction to KNIME Analytics Platform and the data science cycle. Then we’ll split into groups and focus on one of the following phases of the data science cycle:

  • Working on the raw data. Data access and data preparation.
  • Machine learning. Which model shall I use? Which parameters?
  • I have a great model, now what? The model deployment phase.

 

We’ll provide datasets, jump-start workflows, solutions, and of course data science experts. All you need is your own laptop with KNIME Analytics Platform pre-installed.

To join, simply sign up on our event page!

Wrapping up the roadshow, we have a week of KNIME trainings in Austin. These trainings are a great opportunity to learn more about KNIME Analytics Platform, Text Processing, Big Data, and KNIME Server.

See you there!
