If you want to apply as a graduate student under my supervision at Ecole Polytechnique, please read student page
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.
