Dr Evelina Gabasova is a machine learning and data science researcher. She works as Principal Research Data Scientist at The Alan Turing Institute, the UK's national institute for data science and artificial intelligence. She is a member of the research engineering team where she is connecting academic research with real-world applications. Her passion is to make data science understandable and accessible to everyone. When not wrangling data or training machine learning models, she is an active member of the F# community, Microsoft MVP and a technical speaker.
Let's dive together into the the world of Star Wars! We'll use the force of F# to process publicly available datasets relating to the Star Wars movies and we'll find out who's the most important character in the stories and why were the prequels so unsuccessful. On the way, you'll see why F# is a great language for data science - from preprocessing the data to visualizing them - and you'll also learn how you can use similar data processing pipelines to get interesting insights from your own data.Slides
