Embark on a two-day journey to learn a new programming language that has far-reaching applicability. As the language of choice for data science, advanced research, and the expanding field of AI, Python will propel you into the heart of machine learning and artificial intelligence.
Join Microsoft Azure MVP, Eric D. Boyd, for an immersive hands-on lab, a two-day-long expedition into the land of Python. And you don’t need to have any prior knowledge of Python to attend. We'll begin with the bedrock principles encompassing variables, functions, conditionals, and loops. From there, we'll explore more advanced concepts, including error handling, library utilization, testing practices, and more.
Equipped with a solid foundation in Python, you will immediately employ your newfound knowledge to craft innovative solutions across the pivotal domains of machine learning and artificial intelligence. Expect to delve into areas spanning search algorithms, knowledge representation, uncertainty modeling, optimization strategies, machine learning paradigms, neural network architectures, and even natural language processing. This dynamic learning experience will be underpinned by the utilization of established libraries such as Scikit-learn, TensorFlow, NLTK, and more.
And our journey won’t conclude there. You’ll get to embark on a journey through the innovative world of prompt engineering using large language models. Engage with OpenAI's transformative GPT models and navigate the terrain with tools like LangChain and Semantic Kernel, opening doors to novel applications and possibilities in language-driven AI systems.
Unlock the potential of Python and AI in a hands-on environment where theory evolves into tangible skills, and where your career potential gains an invaluable edge.
You will learn:
- About the Python programming language
- Use Python to create Machine Learning and AI solutions
- Prompt engineering with Python and tools like LangChain
You must provide your own laptop computer (Windows or Mac) for this hands-on lab.
All other laptop requirements will be provided to attendees 2 weeks prior to the conference.
