2) to create awareness and facilitate the application of data science within the Hong Kong community and worldwide;

Our workshops teaches about R and Python, the two langauges that is most popular with data scientists. Later on we will expand it to different machine learning algorithms.


We aim to create competitions using real life data and issues. The competitions will reinforce the data science skills that we taught in our training.


We will have business owners from different industries present their problems to data scientists. They will describe their business and the challenges and data scientists will aim to solve their problems using data science and machine learning.
