Our full-time data science course gives you the skills you need to launch your career in a data science team in only 9 weeks. From Pandas to Deep Learning, you will finish the course knowing how to explore, clean and transform data into actionable insights and how to implement machine learning models from start to finish in a production environment, working in teams with the best-in-class tool belt.
Our course is designed to make you learn Data Science step by step, starting with the basic data toolkit in Python and Mathematics to the complete implementation and deployment cycle of machine learning algorithms.
Our data science course is very intense. To save time and nail it from the beginning, our students must complete an online preparation work before starting the bootcamp. This work takes around 40 hours and covers the basics of Python, the pre-requisite language of the course, and some mathematical topics used every day by data scientists.
Learn programming in Python, how to work with Jupyter Notebook and to use powerful Python libraries like Pandas and NumPy to explore and analyze big data sets. Collect data from various sources, including CSV files, SQL queries on relational databases, Google Big Query, APIs and Web scraping.
Learn how to formulate a good question and how to answer it by building the right SQL query. This module will cover schema architecture and then dive deep into the advanced manipulation of SELECT to extract useful information from a stand-alone database or using a SQL client software like DBeaver.
Make your data analysis more visual and understandable by including data visualizations in your Notebook. Learn how to plot your data frames using Python libraries such as matplotlib and seaborn and transform your data into actionable insights.
Understand the underlying math behind all the libraries and models used in the bootcamp. Become comfortable with the basic concepts of statistics & probabilities (mean, variance, random variable, Bayes’s Theorem, etc.) and with matrix computation, at the core of numerical operations in libraries like Pandas and Numpy.
Learn how to explore, clean, and prepare your dataset through preprocessing techniques like vectorization. Get familiar with the classic models of supervised learning - linear and logistic regressions. Learn how to solve prediction and classification tasks with the Python library scikit-learn using learning algorithms like KNN (k-nearest neighbors).
Implement training and testing phases to make sure your model can be generalised to unseen data and deployed in production with predictable accuracy. Learn how to prevent overfitting using regularization methods and how to choose the right loss function to improve your model's accuracy.
Evaluate your model's performance by defining what to optimise and the right error metrics in order to assess your business impact. Improve your model's performance with validation methods such as cross validation or hyperparameter tuning. Finally, discover a powerful supervised learning method called SVM (Support Vector Machines).
Move to unsupervised learning and implement methods like PCA for dimensionality reduction or clustering for discovering groups in a data set. Complete your toolbelt with ensemble methods that combine other models to improve performance, such as Random Forest or Gradient Boosting.
Move from Jupyter Notebook to a code editor and learn how to set up a machine learning project in the right way in order to quickly and confidently iterate. Learn how to convert a machine learning model into a model with a robust and scalable pipeline with sklearn-pipeline using encoders and transformers.
Building a machine learning model from start to finish requires a lot of data preparation, experimentation, iteration and tuning. We'll teach you how to do your feature engineering and hyperparameter tuning in order to build the best model. For this, we will leverage a library called MLflow.
Finally, we'll show you how to deploy your code and model to production. Using Google Cloud AI Platform and Airflow, you'll be able to train your model at scale, package it and make it available to the world.
Get comfortable with managing high-dimensional variables and transforming them into manageable input. Learn classic preprocessing techniques for images like normalization, standardization and whitening. Apply the right type of encodings to prepare your text data for different NLP tasks (Natural Language Processing).
Understand the architecture of neural networks (neurons, layers, stacks) and their parameters (activation functions, loss function, optimizer). Become autonomous to build your own networks like Convolutional Neural Networks (for images), Recurrent Neural Networks (for time-series) and Natural Language Processing networks (for text).
Discover a new library called keras, which is a developer-friendly wrapper over tensorflow, a Deep Learning library created by Google. We'll teach you the fundamental techniques to build your first deep learning model with Keras.
Go further into computer vision with Deep Learning building networks for object detection and recognition. Implement advanced techniques like data augmentation to augment your training set by computing image perturbations (random crops, intensity changes etc) in order to improve your model's generalization.
Time to solve a real-life problem: "as a data scientist working for a major e-commerce company, how can I find interesting recommendations to improve our website's performance?". You'll learn how to structure a Python repository with object-oriented programming in order to collaborate efficiently, how to survive the data preparation phase of a vast dataset, how to find and interpret meaningful statistical results quickly before making advanced predictions, and how to explain your results to a non-technical audience thanks to cost/benefits analysis. You'll be working in group of 3-4 to share your progress, present and compare your results."
After this first e-commerce project of one week, you'll spend the next two weeks on a group project working on an exciting data science problem you want to solve! You will use a mix of your own datasets (if you have any from your company / non-profit organisation) and open-data repositories (Government initiatives, Kaggle, etc.). It will be a great way to practice all the tools, techniques and methodologies covered in the Data Science Course and will make you realize how autonomous you have become.
