Introduction to Machine Learning with Scikit-Learn

Description: Python is the most popular language for Machine Learning. Women in AI is delighted to bring a half-day workshop for introducing the intuition behind machine learning along with a series of hands-on sessions to implement machine learning models using Pandas and Scikit-Learn Python libraries. This workshop is designed to explain concepts in byte-sized contents and focus primarily on Python programming.

  • Who can join: Anyone with a EuroPython 2023 Tutorial Ticket or Combined Ticket or In-Person Conference Tickets. Slots are available for 30 participants. We appreciate if you could register your interest in the form below to help us plan!
  • When: 13:45–17:00, Monday 17 July
  • Where: Prague Congress Centre (PCC)), Room TBC
  • What do you need to bring? A laptop with internet access. We will be working on Google Colab on your web browser, hence, no prior set-up will be required.
  • Level: Beginner (Basic prior knowledge of Python is helpful but is not required for this workshop; No prior knowledge of Machine Learning is expected)
