An Introduction to Data Science

Date/Time: 

2018-07-07 14:30 to 16:30

Location: 

Hong Kong Polytechnic University Room BC402

With current technology and the integration of sensing equipment in almost every aspect of our lives (i.e. the IOT - Internet of Things), data collection is ubiquitous. What can be done with all this data? How can it be turned into usable information from which we can derive knowledge? Data Science is the discipline of analysing and making use of this data. In collaboration with KMIRC, KMP's Raymond Ng who has recently completed a year-long study on Data Science will share with us what he has learnt.  

The seminar will introduce what data science is and how machine learning can be applied to different kinds of businesses. Some real cases in machine learning will also be explained. This seminar is for those who would consider data science as their future career, or for those who want to apply machine learning to their organization.
