Machine Learning 101 on NeSI workshop - now accepting expressions of interest
On 28 September 2021 NeSI and partners will be offering a hybrid Machine Learning 101 workshop and you are invited to fill out an expression of interest form to signal your interest in attending. Please submit your interest by 17 August 2021
What does hybrid mean?
For this event, there will be multiple small groups of in-person attendees learning from remote instructors. The in-person locations are TBD based on the responses we get from the ML101 expression of interest form. Please note that each in-person 'hub' location will have in-person helpers for 1:1 help/ troubleshooting.
About this event
In this full day, hands-on workshop, the NeSI team will introduce you to the wonderful world of machine learning via the user-friendly Jupyter on NeSI platform. Come along to acquaint yourself with amazing algorithms and conquer your fear of obscure machine learning jargon.
You will be taken on a whirlwind tour of the Scikit-learn Python library during which you will encounter the usual machine learning suspects (aka things that are easy to google). You will then test-drive your new skills on a real machine learning problem.
Learners will practice model fitting, evaluation and model selection. At the end of this session they should know:
- the definitions of key machine learning terms,
- the main phases of a machine learning project,
- the types of ML tasks and associated classes of models.
