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.


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).

Content: We will be giving a general overview on machine learning followed by worked examples of how to build machine learning pipelines.


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



When: Thursday 14 September, 9am to 5pm


Where: Building 100 : Council Chambers (level 3)
