*Lunch is not provided and it is recommended to bring your lunch
After a brief introduction to the concepts of machine learning, we'll dive into a hands-on session with Pandas to wrangle data.
After lunch, we'll reconvene and focus on the basic theory of linear regression and how to apply it in a practical way. We'll use a dataset about house prices in Iowa to learn to make useful predictions.
