Data Science Retreat is for numerate people with basic knowledge of machine learning.
Some programming knowledge is a requisite, for example in R, Python or SQL. We don't expect you to be proficient already but we do expect confidence in your coding, because you will spend most of your time doing it.
You do not need a deep mathematical background. Some techniques, though, rely on linear algebra and probability theory.
We update and improve our curriculum for every batch of students coming to DSR.
Its emphasis is on helping you find questions you can answer with modern technology and on producing the best performing model humanly possible.
You will present your work to different audiences. We will train you to do it, but you may want to feel confident speaking in public before applying.
