About The Data Science Summer School
The Data Science Summer School is a series of theoretical and practical workshops on the exciting methods and technologies currently employed by industry, government, and civil society to address the world's most complex problems today. It is organized by the Hertie School Data Science Lab with funding and support from the Hertie School and the Dieter Schwarz Foundation
Widely considered as one of the best programming languages for beginners, Python is a general purpose language that is currently the best choice for machine learning and deep learning research and application. The course will walk you through the basics of this language and how to use it to solve programming challenges.
