Is Machine Learning and Data Science your thing? Do you want to create your own virtual smart assistant or play with vast sums of data to create something unique? But most of all, do you have the patience and perseverance to go that extra mile to learn Machine Learning and Data Science? If yes, then this is an excellent opportunity for you, which can change your life. So read this article carefully till the very end.
The number of IT enthusiasts has risen dramatically. More and more youths are leaning towards the world of Machine learning and Data Science. However, students transiting to Data Science and Machine Learning often find overwhelming information and get scattered due to lack of a proper mentor.
National Workshop on Machine Learning and Data Science (NWMLDS) aims to fill that gap and support newcomers by backing them with the fundamentals of the subjects. The workshop aims to provide a platform for students, engineers, and entrepreneurs from different parts of Nepal and abroad.
It offers them a proper learning experience in machine learning and data science. It also aims to foster the relationship between the theoretical study and the practical industry.
About the Workshop
The workshop is organized by the Machine Learning and Data Science Community of Nepal. They host this workshop every year. The first workshop (NWMLDS) was conducted in 2018 from May 9 to 11 at KIST College, Kathmandu.
There were 40 students and other professionals in that event who were selected from more than 100 applicants. They were selected based on their interest and background on data science and machine learning.
The Second NWMLDS workshop was held on July 10-14,2019, also at KIST College, Kathmandu. The workshop included various guest lectures, keynote speeches, and industry’s expert-guided projects.
As foretold, every year, the workshop has been held at KIST college. However, this year things are much different. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 3rd NWMLDS is being held virtually from July 30 to August 3, 2020. The applicant will also have to apply virtually.
