Hands-On Lab (Pre-registration required)

17:15 - 19:30

Advanced data science techniques, like machine learning (ML), have proven an extremely useful tool to derive valuable insights from existing data. Data scientists spend most of their time looking for the right data and massaging it into a usable format.

Join this session to achieve the skills with the Denodo Platform for accelerating data acquisition and preparation to enable data scientists with the data they need. Learn how to create data inputs for a ML model; transform and clean data; utilize Denodo Catalog to find data needed for a ML model; access training and test data sets. Attendees will learn to load data into a ML model algorithm; make use of Apache Zeppelin to run interactive queries to the Denodo Platform, draw charts and run Python code.
