Overview
This programme introduces basic Python programming and community best practices such as using Jupyter/Python. The programme then moves on to show how Python can be applied to data mining, analytics, data science and artificial intelligence projects. At the end of this programme, participants will gain an overview of the Python ecosystem as well as the skills necessary to self-learn and continue on their Python learning journey.  
The programme will define data science and explore the first two things a data scientist must do – cleaning and visualizing data. It will then cover the Data Science Workflow - training models and testing them through the application of machine learning models to various industry-relevant data science problems. The tools used will be Scikit-learn and Keras.
