It is evident that a solid math foundation is indispensible if one has to get into Data science in an honest-to-goodness way. Unfortunately, for many of us math was just a means to get better scores and never really a means to understand the world around us. That systemic failure (education system) causes many of us to feel a “gap” when doing / learning data science. It is high time that we acknowledge that gap and take remedial action.
The purpose of the workshop is to develop an intuitive understanding of the concepts. We let go the fear of rigorous notation and embrace the rationale behind it. The key take away for a participant has to be confidence of being able to deal with any math thrown to them in their role as data science developers.
