Automating data science and machine learning

Ministrante: Dr. André C. P. L. F. de Carvalho, Universidade de São Paulo


After a brief introduction to the main aspects of Data Science and Machine Learning, this course will introduce how end-to-end Machine Learning solutions can be automated. For such, the historical evolution, the main approaches, with a focus on basic aspects of metalearning, will be presented.  Social implications of of automated data science solutions will also be discussed.
