Over the past few years we have seen and heard a lot about the use of machine learning and data science. Now more than ever, organizations of all sizes from startups to large scale corporations are looking at ways they can benefit by applying these technologies to their data.

However, as your business or organization dives into these areas, you likely have questions. You might be wondering:

  • Am I ready?
  • How do I start?
  • How do I measure success?
  • Who do I need to add to my team?

As part of Startup Edmonton's "Startup Week" the data science team from Cybera will provide you with an introductory overview into data science. They will cover how you can apply it in your area of expertise, share resources that you can leverage, and discuss what you may need to start your own data science project. We’ll also share success stories from Alberta organizations currently using data science and provide "real world" examples of how this practice can be applied.

Start a career in Data Science/Machine Learning or Software Engineering with Alberta AI

Zoom Passcode: 123

After a hiatus of a few months, Alberta AI is kicking off with an amazing program for those who want to pursue a career in Data Science/Machine Learning or Software engineering. This time the mentor will be the President of Alberta AI, Dr. Lihang Ying. He will guide you on how to learn about these fields, will share some resources, and will discuss interview preparation. You will also get a chance to ask any question you have. 

This session is geared towards those who have background in engineering but everyone is welcome. Don't miss this fascinating opportunity!

Thank you to the Alberta Machine Intelligence Institute (Amii) for sponsoring the AI/ML track as part of Edmonton Startup Week.
