The first part -- the school-- will focus on introductory and advanced lectures in data science and machine learning as well as moderate to advanced practical and tutorial sessions where participants will get their hands wet wrangling and munging datasets and applying cutting edge machine learning techniques to derive inference from the data.
The second part -- the workshop-- will be organized around paper presentations and interactive panel discussions.Participants will develop a framework for attracting young African talent, mentors and researchers from academia, the public sector and the private sector, to engage in activities geared towards harnessing big data and real-time analytics for the public good.
