Python Introduction to Machine Learning: Parts 1-2

February 23, 2022, 10:00am
This workshop introduces students to scikit-learn, the popular machine learning library in Python, as well as the auto-ML library built on top of scikit-learn, TPOT. The focus will be on scikit-learn syntax and available tools to apply machine learning algorithms to datasets. No theory instruction will be provided.

Lia Chin-Purcell

Consultant
School of Information

Hello! I am a first-year Masters's student at the School of Information in the MIMS program with a focus is in data science and ethics. Before joining Berkeley, I studied computer science at the University of Puget Sound.

Python Introduction to Artificial Neural Networks

November 17, 2021, 9:00am
This workshop presents a brief history of Artificial Neural Networks (ANNs) and an explanation of the intuition behind them; a step-by-step reconstruction of a very basic ANN, and then how to use the scikit-learn library to implement an ANN for solving a classification problem.

R Introduction to Deep Learning: Parts 1-2

November 17, 2021, 10:00am
This workshop introduces the basic concepts of Deep Learning — the training and performance evaluation of large neural networks, especially for image classification, natural language processing, and time-series data. Like many other machine learning algorithms, we will use deep learning algorithms to map input data to their appropriately classified outcome labels.

R Introduction to Machine Learning with tidymodels: Parts 1-2

November 16, 2021, 1:00pm
Machine learning often evokes images of Skynet, self-driving cars, and computerized homes. However, these ideas are less science fiction as they are tangible phenomena that are predicated on description, classification, prediction, and pattern recognition in data. During this two part workshop, we will discuss basic features of supervised machine learning algorithms including k-nearest neighbor, linear regression, decision tree, random forest, boosting, and ensembling using the tidymodels framework. To social scientists, such methods might be critical for investigating evolutionary relationships, global health patterns, voter turnout in local elections, or individual psychological diagnoses.

Alex Bruefach

Discovery Graduate Fellow
Materials Science and Engineering

Alex is a PhD Candidate in materials science and engineering developing image processing and machine learning techniques for extracting information from electron microscopy datasets. Her primary focus is understanding what information is transferred from various feature representations of images. She has extensive experience collaborating across boundaries and is passionate about brainstorming innovative approaches to challenging data science problems!
