About Us

The Education Team manages the CDS student run course (INFO 1998: Intro to Machine Learning) as well as other community outreach events such as tech talks (past guests have included managers from Hilton, Facebook, and Munich RE). We also engage in disseminating data science information and knowledge through the creation of tutorials on our online repository. Our members also have the option of contributing to projects like the rest of the CDS teams, sprinkling our presence throughout various projects as well.
