National Learn to Code Day
Saturday, September 23, 2017
10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Location: YSpace Markham, 169 Enterprise Blvd., 3rd Floor
On September 23rd, 2017, Ladies Learning Code is hosting its fifth annual National Learn to Code Day -- the first and only event of its kind in Canada. On that day, over 1,500 Canadians will gather together in over 25 communities to challenge themselves to learn a new skill: Using Data to Solve Problems: An Introduction to Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for Beginners
In partnership with Accenture, we'll build on our mission of teaching Canadians 21st century digital skills and encourage them to use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to make meaning of data.
Artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning are all around us - from Siri on your iPhone to Google Map suggestions, to recommendations for purchases during your Amazon check-out. While many of us may think AI and machine learning mean more robots and self-driving cars, at a fundamental level, they are about data - and ways to make meaning of data.
This workshop has been designed for absolute beginners. If you know absolutely nothing about coding, computer programming or data science, you’ve come to the right place! Our only expectation is that you know how to open up a web browser and do something online like checking your email. (But if you’re reading this, we’re pretty sure you know how to do that.)
