Impacters: Getting Started with Machine Learning!
Impacters (formerly Coder Girls Initiative) aims to start a movement that encourages girls to innovate in the field of Computer Science by giving them the tools to get started and aspiring them to continue exploring. The upcoming eighth session of Impacters will provide selected girls with hands-on experience to see Machine Learning being used in real life scenarios.
Machine Learning is a modern innovation that has quickly managed to become an integral part of the world around us. It is considered to be one of the most exciting and fast-growing fields of research that focuses on using statistical techniques to build intelligent systems than learns and predicts from the available data. From self-driving cars to medical diagnosis, what once used to be science fiction is now becoming a reality.
In our “Getting Started with Machine Learning” workshop, participants will learn the basics of Machine Learning (ML) as a new way to develop models to understand and learn from the vast amount of data. Participants will work in teams to understand ways to tackle real world problems through efficient ML techniques.
WODES and Naya invites girls - students or professional - to participate in the Impacters program either as a participant or a mentor. This is your opportunity to learn, work and compete with girls from various backgrounds!
