Playing with DataExpired

What You'll Do:

Explore ways to create music and art using data. No math or programming experience required! During these two sessions, we’ll train the computer to play some tunes using machine learning, we’ll create interactive visualizations of data, and investigate why everyone is making such a big deal about data.

This class will show you how data is used to make beautiful fun things. We’ll use weakinator to create music using machine learning, we’ll explore p5 to make interactive visualization of data, and we’ll use codap to investigate some data sets.
