The workshop is for absolute beginners who would like to use Python in their research projects, but some contents are transferable to other languages such as R.

This workshop will take place online:

  • Weekly on Tuesday, from 29 September until 17 November 2020, 18:00-21:00

Ireneu Pla is a data engineer specialised in artificial intelligence. He has a background in Computer Science, obtained at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL), and an interest in data taken early in his studies.
