Introduction to Machine Learning

If you’d like to learn how to implement machine learning models, this course is for you! In the span of three classes, you’ll get a chance to dip your toes into this topic.  

We will begin the course by covering theoretical machine learning fundamentals, including some lectures explaining the different types of models and their relative advantages and disadvantages.  

Next, we will show you how to use python libraries to build machine-learning models yourself. 

Finally, we will discuss how to evaluate your models to make sure that they are both technically and ethically sound. 

This course builds on last semester’s python basics and data science in the wild courses, so some basic knowledge of python will be assumed. 

This is an intermediate-level workshop. You will need a basic understanding of Python and how to run Python code. 

Those who have registered to take part will receive an email with full details on how to get ready for this course. 

After taking part in this event, you may decide that you need some further help in applying what you have learnt to your research. If so, you can book a Data Surgery meeting with one of our training fellows.
