Digital Method of the Month: Machine Learning

Have you seen a presentation on digital research methods and wondered if they are applicable to your work? Are you interested in learning new digital skills but unsure where to start?

This is the right place for you!

The digital method of the month meeting is a safe space to freely discuss the practicalities of learning and implementing a new digital skill in your research.

Each month we select a method, and we have an honest and practical discussion on what it takes to learn and master it. How much time will it take to get the basics? What are the software options available? What are the most common pitfalls? Where can you find more info on the subject? Etc...

The method of this month is Machine Learning. Machine learning is a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) focused on building applications that learn from data and improve their accuracy over time without being programmed to do so. In machine learning, algorithms are 'trained' to find patterns and features in massive amounts of data in order to make decisions and predictions based on new data. During the meeting, we will briefly introduce the concept and discuss some of its real-world applications. Join us to learn more about it.

This is a beginner-level event, and no previous knowledge of the method is required.

To attend this event, you will have to join the associated Microsoft Teams group. The link to join the group will be sent to the attendees prior to the course start date, so please make sure to do so in advance.

 

This Digital Method of the Month will be taught by Chris Oldnall.
