Data Science for Everyone: Picture Imperfect

Data science is all about integrating statistical and computational thinking with data. Anna Fergusson’s (University of Auckland) hands-on workshop explored one of the learning tasks she designed to introduce students to the exciting world of image data, machine learning and algorithms. Participants use familiar statistics tools and approaches, such as data cards and collaborative group tasks and also try out some new computational tools for learning from data. Statistical concepts covered include features of data distributions, exploratory data analysis and predictive modelling.
