Speed up your transition into data science
26 Apr – 20 July, 2021
12 July – 05 Oct, 2021
Data Science is such a complex topic that a single person cannot be an expert in every area. Therefore, at DSR, we have one teacher per topic. This allows for the teacher to be a master for that topic.
We source the very best experts and teachers with a track record in Data Science and Machine Learning at e.g. Deloitte, FlixBus, Zalando, HomeToGo, Amazon, New Yorker.
Data science is the intersection of engineering, analytics and business. We teach state-of-the-art Curriculum which is constantly improved every batch.
You’ll be taught by experts in the field, covering theoretical and practical uses of data science and machine learning
April 26th – July 20th, 2021
July 12th – October 5th, 2021
All students design, implement and present a hands-on portfolio project. The project is a chance to show employers your new skillset.
You won’t be alone – the Data Science Retreat staff & community will mentor you along the way.
Our goal is to get you ready for your next challenge and to set you up for success on the job market.
We help you improve your presentation and interview skills, guide you through recruitment processes starting from updating your resume to accepting an offer.
You can join our program through an income share agreement without paying in advance, and repay in instalments once you get a job after the retreat.

Toy Self Driving Car (2018)
A Toy self car that drives within the borders of a circuit. Marcus Jones wrote the operating system (open source) before Amazon released theirs late 2019.
Malaria Microscope (2019)
Code runs on (donated, second hand) phones; hardware is cheap to produce (60 USD). Diagnosing malaria without needing a doctor could potentially save 600k lives per year.
The project was covered by GEO magazine March 2020.
Wheelchair path recommender
Bumpy sidewalks are a problem for wheelchair users, skaters, and small robots. This project took a gold standard of roughness driving a wheelchair around Berlin with a phone attached taking accelerometer data and video of the ground. Then the team generalized their data to the entire city using google street view. The final product could recommend the smoothest path between two points on openStreetMaps.
Self- Driving robot that picks cigarette butts
Cigarette butts are hard to pick up and a serious enviromental risk. A single butt can poison 40 liters of water. This project, inspired by the Pixar movie Wall-e, built a prototype on top of the toy self driving car from previous year. The team added a robot arm and computer vision to detect the cigarette butts. The local cleaning company liked the prototype enough to have three meetings with the team.
