Kickstarting Your Machine Learning Journey
Presented by SGInnovate & NUS-ISS
Together with the National University of Singapore – Institute of Systems Science, SGInnovate is proud to bring to you an accelerated 4 days Machine Learning Workshop designed to kickstart your journey into this field.
This workshop is designed for attendees with some technical skills e.g. software programmers, data analysts, developers who are comfortable with writing codes. Hit the ground running with hands-on machine learning experience through this workshop!
Machine Learning is a field of research that can take years to attain mastery of it. Through this workshop, you will experiment in the areas that are most relevant today. The ultimate goal is to help you construct a learning map of areas to continue improving upon after each course.
Machine Learning practitioners spend a lot of time experimenting. This workshop will, therefore, focus less on mathematics and theory, and more on the practical aspects of getting started on experimentation.
By the end of the course, you will also be designing and implementing your own project to apply what you learnt.
To benefit most from this course, you are expected to have a basic programming background in Python, and /or able to quickly self-learn Python along the way.
This workshop is eligible for funding support. For more details, please refer to the "Pricing" tab above.
- Comfortable writing codes
- Familiar with basic Python, NumPy and Pandas
- Attendees MUST bring their own laptops
In this course, participants will learn to:
- Describe the well-known machine learning techniques and applications
- Apply well-known machine learning models using Python libraries for classification, regression, and clustering
- Apply the machine learning workflow (data preparation, feature engineering, training and validation) for supervised and unsupervised learning problems
- Apply machine learning to a domain-specific problem of their choice, evaluate its effectiveness, and suggest further improvements
For enquiries, please send an email to [email protected].
