The mission of the project is to share knowledge how to use machine learning in real life.

DataWorkshop try to solve these problems. The idea is simple. Focus more on practical examples, less on theory (don’t try to cover all topics, only the most important). Explain by examples, not by theoretical formulas. Motivate to think and “feel” how to solve a problem, instead of memorizing some formulas or names (algorithms, models and so on). DataWorkshop accomplishes its goals through workshops, conferences, and courses.
