Live coding course introducing the basics of ML & provides a comprehensive introduction to Linear Regression and Model Training using Python

About this Event

Please register your interest by joining the waiting list using your University email*.

The schedule includes two short breaks and a lunch break at 12:30 pm AEDT.

In this live coding workshop, we explain the fundamentals of Machine Learning and provide a comprehensive introduction to Linear Regression and Model Training. We use Python to apply the knowledge on real-world datasets. We hope after this hands-on workshop, you will have a better understanding of these Machine Learning models and techniques and appreciate its capability, as well as make better informed decisions on how to leverage Machine Learning in your research.

Please read carefully the prerequisites and make sure you have the required knowledge.

For a better and more complete understanding of the most popular Machine Learning models and techniques please consider attending all three Introduction to Machine Learning using Python workshops:


  • Good understanding of Python syntax and basic programming concepts
  • Familiar with Pandas, Numpy and Seaborn libraries
  • Maths knowledge is not required. There are only a few Math formula that you are going to see in this course, however references to Mathematics required for learning about Machine Learning will be provided. Having an understanding of the Mathematics behind each Machine Learning algorithms is going to make you appreciate the behaviour of the model and know its pros/cons when using them.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the difference between supervised and unsupervised Machine Learning.
  • Understand the fundamentals of Machine Learning.
  • Comprehensive introduction to Machine Learning models and techniques such as Linear Regression and Model Training.
  • Understand the Machine Learning modelling workflows.
  • Use Python and scikit-learn to process real datasets, train and apply Machine Learning models

Why do this course?

  • Useful for anyone who wants to learn about Machine Learning but are overwhelmed with the tremendous amount of resources.
  • It does not go in depth into mathematical concepts and formula, however formal intuitions and references are provided to guide the participants for further learning.
  • We do have applications on real datasets!
  • Machine Learning models are introduced in this course together with important feature engineering techniques that are guaranteed to be useful in your own projects.
  • Give you enough background to kickstart your own Machine Learning journey, or transition yourself into Deep Learning.

The Intersect approach to training

At Intersect, we work closely with our member universities to develop and deliver training that targets the day-to-day software and technology problems that researchers face. We deliver hands-on courses in a relaxed setting with knowledgeable, helpful trainers who are themselves researchers and who know how researchers work.
