Projects @ Data Science Retreat
All participants have the opportunity to engage in project work. Executing a substantial data science project shows your skills. See what data enthusiasts like you achieved at Data Science Retreat as a result of their training here, and imagination they brought with them. Get an impression of their experience by watching graduates talk through their projects - from the spark in inspiration to the finished product.
Dr. Juliana Du is a doctor in Human Genetics. She enrolled at DSR as part of Batch 13, and ended up building an app that uses computer vision to diagnose melanoma in humans.
A pertinent project for a Post-Truth Era, Diego Amicabile has worked across Europe in the IT industry for nearly two decades before coming to Data Science Retreat Batch 12 and starting work on a Fake News Detector (no, not "Generator"!) to expose fictitious news stories in the tech world.
Dr. Setareh Sadjadi was a chemical engineer in DSR Batch 13. She wanted to produce a project relating to climate change and the promotion renewable energy usage. She wrote a script to predict and forecast the photovoltaic power from a solar-panelled roof.
Dr. James Ryan was a theoretical physicist from Ireland when he joined Batch 13 of DSR in 2018. His time at the Retreat saw him produce a real-time road sign detector from scratch using a Raspberry Pi to be used in cars in a mere two weeks. How did he do...? Find out!
Petroleum enineer Antoine Montaut was - until his time at DSR - a petrophysicist in Austin, Texas. His project for DSR took a more theoretical approach, and combined ermergence and reinforcement learning, to produce visualisations on how reinforcement learning works, through the medium of the humble ant colony.
