Masterclass in Data Analysis, Presentation and Machine Learning in Health, Crime and Social Care


In collaboration with The Data Lab and Hutchinson Networks, this training course provides coverage of data analysis in health, crime and social care. It aims to cover the key data analysis areas of capture, analysis and presentation, with a full coverage of how advanced analytics can be used to covert data into useful information.

This course will use Python, Pandas, Plotly and Machine Learning, and contain a wide range of datasets which are analysed for the presentation of evidence. This includes a range of charting methods which make sense of large-scale datasets.

Along with the masterclass will show how machine learning can be used to train computers to learn complex relationships. While the focus will be on health, crime and social care, it is also relevant to anyone who wants to learn about data analysis and presentation, and will provide hands-on experience in machine learning methods.
