Learn Data Science

About

For the first time, Inspire Idaho is banding together data enthusiasts from across multiple disciplines, skill levels, and companies. Inspire Idaho: Data Science is a 4-day event (August 14-18, 2019) where companies, researchers, and students immerse themselves in data science.

We’re coming together to solve real world challenges, learn about data science, hear from leaders in research, and get you started in the data sciences field.

This all happens in a fun, interactive, and competitive way. We believe Inspire Idaho: Data Science will inspire learners to integrate quality data-driven practices into their field of expertise.

Learners

With just some basic knowledge of Python, we will take you through the all the stages of a good data science project, like data importing/preprocessing, descriptive stats & visualization, machine learning/model building, and report writing! You can even earn points during your journey for some sweet swag!
