Data Science

I designed a graduate course on Statistical Machine Learning and Data Mining and I am writing a graduate textbook, check teaching page for more details.
Every semester I run a one-day hands-on Python Workshop and an R Workshop in Data Science and Artificial Intelligence at GERAD.

If you want to study data science here is the visualization of interesting programs for data science programs. Keep your eye on masters of data science in University of British Columbia which is excellent one-year program in masters level.
