The goal of the Summer School is to give the practice-oriented knowledge in the field of Data Science. The school’s program incorporates three following stages. During the first stage, the participants attend introductory courses that would make them familiar with the main theme of the school: Statistical Inference, Machine Learning, Data Visualization.
During the second stage, the students are involved in several elective practice-oriented courses in the domains of Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, Healthcare, Social Network Analysis, Urban Data Science, Recommender Systems, etc.
The third stage is substantially dedicated to working on the projects. The project topics are provided by the supervisors: school’s lecturers, representatives of IT companies, and other partner organizations. The project work during several days means implementation and approbation of the previously obtained knowledge and skills. The project teams present their results publicly at the end of the school.
