Python® Data Science Full Throttle with Paul Deitel: Introductory Artificial Intelligence (AI), Big Data and Cloud Case Studies

A One-Day, Presentation-Only, Case-Study-Intensive Seminar

Topic: Data
Paul J. Deitel

In this live training for Python programmers, Paul introduces some of today's most compelling, leading-edge computing technologies with cool examples on natural language processing, data mining Twitter® for sentiment analysis, cognitive computing with IBM® Watson™, supervised machine learning with classification and regression, unsupervised machine learning with clustering, computer vision through deep learning with a convolutional neural network, sentiment analysis through deep learning with a recurrent neural network, and big data with Hadoop®, Spark™ streaming, NoSQL databases and the Internet of Things. This is an aggressively paced, presentation-only, code-highlights and discussion seminar. There is no lab component. You’ll receive all the code and slides.

  • You’ll leverage your Python skills to dive into some key Python data science, AI, big data and cloud technologies
  • You’ll study many Python code examples, from individual snippets to highlights of fully implemented case studies
  • You'll see how Python libraries for data science, AI, big data and cloud software technologies enable you to create powerful applications with minimal code quickly

What you'll learn-and how you can apply it

Paul will present programming case studies introducing the following data science, AI, big data, cloud and visualization technologies, libraries and tools:

  • Natural Language Processing—TextBlob, Textatistic, spaCy and word_cloud
  • Data Mining Twitter—Sentiment analysis, Tweepy, JSON, streaming tweets, word_cloud
  • IBM Watson and Cognitive Computing—Building an inter-language speech-to-speech translator
  • Supervised Machine Learning—Classification and linear regression with scikit-learn, Seaborn and Matplotlib
  • Unsupervised Machine Learning—Clustering with scikit-learn
  • Deep Learning for Computer Vision—Convolutional neural network in Keras running over TensorFlow
  • Deep Learning for Sentiment Analysis—Recurrent neural network in Keras running over TensorFlow
  • MongoDB NoSQL Document Database—Storing streaming tweets as JSON documents and visualizing with an interactive folium map
  • Hadoop—MapReduce with Hadoop Streaming running on a Microsoft Azure cluster
  • Spark—Spark and Spark Streaming running on a juypyter/pyspark-notebook Docker container
  • Internet of Things (IoT) Streaming Data—Simulated streaming sensors with dweet.io, dweepy and PubNub; simulated streaming stock prices with PubNub; and visualizing streaming data with freeboard.io and Seaborn

This training course is for you because...

  • You’re a Python developer and you see exciting AI, big data and data science technologies popping up everywhere and you want a one-day, code-based introduction to them
  • You’re a Python developer looking to enhance your career opportunities with these current technologies
  • You’re a manager contemplating Python projects using AI, big data and data science technologies and want a one-day, code-based introduction to them
  • You’re an R developer whose organization is considering Python and you want a one-day, code-based introduction to Python’s AI, big data and data science capabilities


  • Python programming experience
  • Python® Full Throttle with Paul Deitel, one-day live training offered periodically here on O’Reilly online learning
  • Lessons 1-10 of Paul’s new, in-depth video course Python® Fundamentals LiveLessons, which you can view here on O’Reilly online learning
  • Chapters 1-10 of Paul’s new book Python® for Programmers, which you can read here on O’Reilly online learning

Note: Python code is easy to read, so even if you’re an experienced developer who does not know Python, you can still get a lot out of this course.

Recommended preparation

  • No setup is required—this is a lecture-only presentation
  • After the training, if you'd like to run the code, install the free Anaconda Python 3.x distribution (for macOS, Windows and Linux): https://www.anaconda.com/distribution/#download-section
  • For examples that require additional setup, instructions are provided in Chapters 11-16 of Paul’s book Python® for Programmers and in Lessons 11-16 of Paul’s Python® Fundamentals LiveLessons videos, both available here on O’Reilly online learning.
  • We recommend that you run the code examples using JupyterLab with the Jupyter Notebooks we provide. For a quick introduction to Jupyter Notebooks and JupyterLab, see either the Before You Begin lesson and Lesson 1 of Paul’s Python® Fundamentals LiveLessons videos or the Before You Begin section and Section 1.5 in Paul’s book Python® for Programmers.

Additional materials, downloads, supplemental content, or resources needed in advance:

  • Paul will continue to answer your questions after the course at paul@deitel.com. On the day of the course, Paul will provide links to download the slides and the code (in standard Python .py files and in Jupyter Notebooks .ipynb files).
  • If you’re an instructor teaching college or professional Python courses, you may want to check out Paul’s new full-color textbook, Intro to Python® for Computer Science and Data Science: Learning to Program with AI, Big Data and the Cloud. The textbook includes 240 pages of additional content with programming fundamentals for novices, 557 self-check exercises and 471 exercises and projects.
