Math for Data Science
Deal with math at your role as data science dev by intuitive understanding of the concepts
27 Sat 09:00 AM – 05:35 PM IST
It is evident that a solid math foundation is indispensible if one has to get into Data science in an honest-to-goodness way. Unfortunately, for many of us math was just a means to get better scores and never really a means to understand the world around us. That systemic failure (education system) causes many of us to feel a “gap” when doing / learning data science.
It is high time that we acknowledge that gap and take remedial action.
The purpose of the workshop is to develop an intuitive understanding of the concepts. We let go the fear of rigorous notation and embrace the rationale behind it.
The key take away for a participant has to be confidence of being able to deal with any math thrown to them in their role as data science developers.
This workshop is a day-long immersive experience. We will explore following areas:
Things to get along: While you won’t need any particular softwares for this workshop, you will need the following:
Vishal Gokhale is a programmer with an odd love for maths. He enjoys simplifying heavy math protein into more absorbable amino acids, only to be assimilated into plump biceps of confidence that need to be flexed when the situation demands.
He wants to infect people with the addiction of epiphanies that comes with solving math problems.
He has been working as a programmer on Data Science projects for the last 6+ years and as a programmer for last 13+ years.
