Fall 2022 Machine Learning Workshop

A workshop series on machine learning using tools in python is starting this Thursday (Oct 20th) at HMC. If you are interested, please find more information below and register using this link.

Short version: 

What: A Hands-on Workshop series in Machine Learning

Who: All 7C students

Instructor: Dr. Aashita Kesarwani

When: 3-5 pm PST on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Oct 20th, 2022 to Nov 10th, 2022 (7 sessions in total)

Where: Shanahan 3485 (Grace Hopper Conference room) or remotely via Zoom (link will be shared when you register)

Long version:

The workshop series is designed with a focus on the practical aspects of machine learning using real-world datasets and the tools in the Python ecosystem and is targeted towards complete beginners familiar with Python.

You will learn the minimal but most useful tools for exploring datasets using pandas and then be gently introduced to neural networks. You will also learn various architectures such as Convolution Neural Networks (CNN), Recurrent Neural Networks (RNN), transformer-based models, etc., and apply them to real-world textual and image datasets.

Please register using this Google form to save your seat. It is highly recommended to attend the workshop in person as you will be coding in groups and participating in discussions, but there is an option to join remotely via Zoom. The Zoom link and the recordings for each session will be shared with the registered participants. Please have a look here for more information, including the topics to be covered. You are free to attend some of the sessions while skipping others if you are already familiar with certain topics.
