Session Presenter: Alireza Manashty, Assistant Professor, Director, Data Science Laboratory
Session: “Building Predictive Analytics Models using Data Science Lifecycle”
People are curious about becoming a data scientist. You do not need to be a data scientist to start solving business problems using data science lifecycle.
In this talk, you will learn about what Big Data and Data Science could actually mean, and how you can solve an actual business problem and leverage the data science lifecycle to automate some decisions using machine learning models in Python.
What will be covered in this talk:
- How to reframe a business problem into a data science problem
- Step-by-step scenario following the data science lifecycle to solve a business problem
- Python sample code snippets for each step
- Learning about a simple machine learning model in details
