    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    Are you using a smartphone and a PC? Have you asked yourself 'How did my photos get on my mobile device - I didn't put them there?' Lots of modern devices and gadgets have a sync feature to keep users from losing data and enable them to access their files on multiple devices and from wherever they are. This can be very convenient but also confusing and it potentially compromises your digital security. This course will help you manage your files across multiple devices so you can be sure where your different files are and how they are organised and accessible.

    Evening
    Course Date: Fri 15 Nov 2019 (and 3 other dates)
    Location on this date: KS - Keeley Street
    One of the great advances in technology is that machines can learn without humans teaching them explicit rules – e.g. letting machines train on samples of speech allows Siri to recognise your commands. Machine learning is a large part of artificial intelligence, and a mystery to most of us. This practical course teaches you how to program learning algorithms in Python. We will cover fundamentals of classification, natural language processing, financial predictions and much more. You will learn elements of data mining, how to choose a learning algorithm, and how to tweak parameters of the algorithm. We will briefly cover the theory behind the algorithms, so some maths knowledge is useful, but not required. To enrol, you must have experience with Python or a similar programming language, e.g. have taken City Lit’s Introduction to Python or Introduction to R programming course.
