Workshop

Data Analytics and Machine Learning in Julia Workshop

Date: 09 August 2021 from 10:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Organisers: Dr Lameck Amugongo, Dr Victor Katoma, Prof José Quenum

This workshop aims to expose the participants to practical aspects of data analytics and machine learning in the Julia programming language; a language that enjoys the simplicity of Python and the performance of C. The topics covered in this workshop include an introduction to Julia, regression and classification with regularisation, latent class analysis and data profiling, model fitting and optimisation and big data and artificial intelligence.

Because we intend to use the time allocated for the workshop for practical sessions, all lectures will be pre-recorded and uploaded prior to the workshop. A short discussion will take place before each practical session.

To join the workshop, please register to the conference and select the workshop. We will then get in touch with you with all the necessary details.
