irreverent and original manner possible.” ― Richard Feynman

*Hacker Math for Machine Learning*

*Date: 3, 4 Dec 2016*

*Venue: Diamond District, Bangalore*

Proficiency in Linear Algebra and Statistics, is a must for anyone pursuing
a career in data science. The goal of this workshop is to introduce some
key concepts that get used repeatedly in data science applications. Our
approach is what we call the “Hacker’s way”. Instead of going back to
formulae and proofs, we teach the concepts by writing code. And in
practical applications. Concepts don’t remain sticky if the usage is never
taught. Topics from three areas are chosen - Hypothesis Testing, Supervised
Learning and Unsupervised Learning.
