Event description

Description

This workshop will introduce machine learning concepts through a mixture of lecture and hands-on coding. The aim is to teach a basic understanding of designing machine learning workflows for supervised and unsupervised learning approaches, classification and regression methods and model tuning. The workshop will be taught by Dr. Kevin Chai and Dr. Rebecca Lange from the Curtin Institute for Computation.

Who: The course is aimed at postgraduate students and researchers as well as professional staff who would like to know more about ML. The course will provide a general overview and is designed to help inform participants about which ML techniques work for different types of data and problems.


Prerequisites: A working knowledge of Python and Jupyter notebooks is essential for this workshop. i.e. knowledge of basic data structures, operations and how to write scripts. The notebooks used throughout the workshop have been developed to be compatible with Python 2.7x and 3.x but may require some Python packages to be updated to the most recent version (e.g. scikit-learn). No prior knowledge of machine learning is expected.


Requirements: Participants must bring a laptop with a Mac, Linux, or Windows operating system (not a tablet, Chromebook, etc.) that they have administrative privileges on. They should have a few specific software packages installed (a detailed list will be send out prior to the workshop).


Topics covered:
  • Data preparation
  • Exploratory data analysis
  • Classification
    • Cross validation
    • Learning curves
    • Model tuning
    • Reporting
  • Regression
  • Clustering
  • Dimensionality reduction


Catering: Morning and Afternoon Tea are provided, lunch is self-catered.
