Alex Dainiak was born in Moscow in 1985. He had his first encounter with programming in 1998 while studying a Pascal circle and discovered he loved it. After working for some time as a programmer, he turned to mathematics. Alex Dainiak now considers himself a professional tutor and applied mathematician rather than a programmer. Nevertheless, he still produces a reasonable amount of code from time to time and takes part in personal and collective software development projects.

Research/Academic Interests:
Graph Theory, Combinatorics, Data Visualisation, Discrete Optimisation

The main goal of the course is to empower learners with knowledge about the optimization algorithms that essentially take the most computation time in the fitting and computation of the machine learning model. Thus, the learner can make informed decisions while choosing the ML model class, the fitting strategy and even the manual implementation.

- Algorithms

- Computer Science

- Machine Learning

- Discrete Mathematics

- C++ 

Research

- Python

- Data Analysis

- Natural Language Processing

DATE: 27 Jan - 14 Feb, 2020

DURATION: 3 Week

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN
ABOUT ALEX

After you define a model in machine learning, you tune the model to the data at hand. Mathematically it usually just boils down to optimizing the fitness function of the model. Naturally, various mathematical optimization methods become an important part in your data scientist’s toolbox as soon as you start working with lots of data and complex models. Even if you do not implement optimization algorithms in your daily analyst’s routine, it is a good idea to be well informed of what goes under the hood when you fit your model, so that you make an informed decision on the parameters of the optimization algorithms and the choice of the algorithm itself. As a bonus, applications of mathematical optimization go well beyond machine learning, so the course material may help you in a computer science career in general.
