Event organized by Thinkful

#var:page_name# cover

The outcome of the Academy Award for Best Picture surprised us all. But, could that have been predicted? In this practical workshop you'll use a dataset that contains previous Oscar winners to build a prediction model to guess the winner for Best Picture Award. You'll get an introduction to a data scientist's tools and methods, including an overview of basic machine learning concepts. Unlike this year's Oscars, our model will predict only one winner!

No previous knowledge of data science is required. Some programming background is helpful but not required. This is a designed to be an introductory (and fun) workshop for beginners. If you have a laptop, make sure to bring it. Otherwise, we can pair you up with someone who has one.
