USI online schools on Digitise, Optimise, Visualise
Institute of Finance
Start date: 1 July 2021
End date: 14 July 2021
The USI DOV School will introduce you in a self-contained way to optimisation, data science and machine learning while covering cutting-edge applications to economics and finance. You will learn the relevant mathematical foundations and how to formulate, visualise and solve problems. You will also understand how to access data and optimisation libraries to answer a given question with the appropriate methods. In four weeks we will guide you from zero to cutting-edge applications and knowledge in optimisation, data science and machine learning, which will prove useful in your work as a student, researcher, or industry professional.
Our learning approach will be interactive and include Python workshops hosted on Nuvolos.cloud. In this knowledge creation cloud, students and professors will efficiently work together on files, datasets, code and applications.
After completing the four modules in the USI DOV school, you will:
- Possess essential mathematical foundations for data science and machine learning
- Be able to formulate, visualise and solve optimisation problems for data science and machine learning
- Know how to implement numerically appropriate solution algorithms
- Be familiar with key cutting-edge applications in economics and finance
