Deep Learning Summer School 2016 Videos

Deep Learning Summer School, Montreal 2016 is aimed at graduate students and industrial engineers and researchers who already have some basic knowledge of machine learning (and possibly but not necessarily of deep learning) and wish to learn more about this rapidly growing field of research. If that is you, there are plenty of videos to help you learn more.

Free Stats book for Computer Scientists

Professor Norm Matloff from the University of California, Davis has published From Algorithms to Z-Scores: Probabilistic and Statistical Modeling in Computer Science which is an open textbook. It approaches statistics from a computer science perspective. Dr. Matloff has been both a professor of statistics and computer science so he is well suited to write such a textbook. This would a good choice of a textbook for a statistics course targeted at primarily computer scientists. It uses the R programming language. The book starts by building the foundations of probability before entering statistics.

The Data Science Industry: Who Does What

The fine folks at DataCamp, a great site for learning data science right in your browser, have come up with another great infographic. This time it compares some of the many job titles in the data science field.

The infographic lays out the roles and skills needed for the following job titles. Note: not all the job roles can be confused with a data scientist, but all the roles can be important when completing an entire data science project.

  • Data Scientist
  • Data Analyst
  • Data Architect
  • Data Engineer
  • Statistician
  • Database Administrator
