Prerequisite knowledge

Attendees should have experience with machine learning, data science, and project management.


Mikio Braun explains why, in practice, hardcore data science is not just about learning methods but also about bringing these methods to production. This does not mean simply reimplementing methods in production systems. Rather, you must successfully deal with issues like data updates, cultural differences between data science and developers, and how to monitor and test in practice.
