Experts from Cybera (Alberta’s not-for-profit technology agency) will show you how to utilize data science, machine learning and natural language processing techniques to generate new prospects, using Twitter data.
During this hands-on technical workshop, you will learn how to take on a data science project, including the basics of data cleaning and exploration. You will also be introduced to select analyses and natural language processing techniques which can be applied to other areas of your business or projects.
This session is an introductory data science workshop, intended for an audience with some experience in programming. We will be using the coding language Python to do most of the work, but experience with Python is not a prerequisite. It will be a workshop environment, so bring your computers!
