  • The effect of social bias in data on AI training

  • Classic statistics vs. machine learning

It's all in the mix - that's why we do not require entry requirements downwards or upwards; Everyone from freshmen to professors is cordially invited. We hope that this will create a relaxed atmosphere with fresh perspectives outside of the usual formal events.

Data Analysis Group

In the Data Analysis Group we analyse the latest data sets from the data science world. We intend to meet monthly to discuss our findings and elect the best report to put on our website. The sign up link below leads you to a GitHub classroom where you just need to follow the instructions to get your own repository with the current data set already in it. This month it is an earthquake data set from USGS. Have fun analyzing!
