We will send out the class materials as well as required library 2 weeks before the class, please follow the instruction and get the environment ready before coming to class.

Who should attend?

  • Data scientist who wants robust or learn more different applications

  • Analyst: Companies who would like to offer re-education to their analytics team to their data science team or just upgrade yourself from analyst to data scientist.

  • Developer, who wants to know more about the algorithm or even think about switching to be the data scientist

  • Business Intelligence (BI): You are already familiar with statistics, want to understand better machine learning and prediction


“Stylianos brings great enthusiasm to his workshop – his interest in all things AI shines through.” - Tim Gordon, Chief Executive at the Liberal Democrats

"Stylianos’s bespoke workshop allows for in-depth complicated analytical concepts to be understood in a manageable and easy way. Coving the background of the constant changing world of data science and breaking down the key concepts of data science." - Dominik Byrne, Investor, Entrepreneur, Advisor

What will participants need to know or do before starting this course?

This course is ideal for the analyst, junior data scientist, and BI also developer. A bit of knowledge of Python or machine learning will help you but it is not required. Have some familiarity with basic programming concepts or languages or statistics. Therefore, experience in Python or Machine Learning is not required but will help.

If you are not sure about your level, write us.

What does the price reflect?

The price reflects two things. First, it distills 7+ years of experience in a few hours, providing only the most relevant pieces for decision-makers, without all the jargon and the buzzwords. Secondly, it reflects the consultancy service which participants will get out of the workshop, and which is usually charged at much higher rates.

What are the problem-solving sessions about?

During the problem-solving sessions, we will solve on the blackboard any kind of problem the audience poses. In a previous workshop, for example, one of the problems was "How can we use Twitter data to predict Bitcoin prices?". The solution included the full pipeline (from data collection to data storage), to actually solving the problem and hiring the right people. Feel free to contact me with your problems before the workshop date.

P.S. The seats are limited to 12 people

¹ Dr. Stylianos Kampakis is an expert data scientist (with a decade of experience), member of the Royal Statistical Society, an honorary research fellow at the UCL Centre for Blockchain Technologies and startup consultant living and working in London. A natural polymath, with degrees in Psychology, Artificial Intelligence, Statistics, Economics and a PhD in Computer Science from University College London he loves using his broad skillset to solve difficult problems.
