Event description

Description

Do you want to learn how to use computer science and statistics to tackle BIG DATA and discover how to ask questions and gather information with BIG DATA?

Join us for a brand new mini class cooked up by a local scientist from Johns Hopkins, Dr. Carrie Wright!

Data science represents the convergence of computer science and statistics. It allows us to infer important relationships and trends in many different fields from genomics to finance and is the basis for artificial intelligence. Come learn how to explore and visualize interesting data about earthquakes, the titanic survivors, or US baby names throughout the last century. This course is appropriate for anyone interested in having fun with data, regardless of their computational experience.

Your awesome teacher: Dr. Carrie Wright is a postdoctoral fellow at the Lieber Institute for Brain Development at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine where she uses data science and statistical methods to study the genetic basis of psychiatric and neurodevelopmental disorders.

When: Saturday December 9th from 10-1pm
