Description: The 2018 PIMS Data Science Workshop has two goals: to bring together top researchers, industry professionals and BC Math students to tackle interesting research and industry problems; and to develop data science literacy in students with strong mathematical skills who may have little experience in the realm of “data science”. A Mathematical Sciences background and some experience with computational tools (python, R, TensorFlow, etc.) will be helpful. Running June 4–8, this workshop will give students experience with data science tools — such as working with large data sets, statistical inference, and machine learning — that will be helpful in their career options after graduation and in their graduate research.
