Workshop on Advanced Data Analytics


This workshop introduces fundamental concepts and methods for machine learning and data mining. The objective is to familiarise the participants with commonly used learning algorithms and techniques and their applications, as well as general questions related to analysing and handling data sets. The emphasis will be thus on machine learning and data mining algorithms and applications, with some broad explanation of the underlying principles. 

 Course Objectives

  • To introduce participants to the techniques of machine learning and data mining
  • To develop skills of using machine learning and data mining algorithms and software to conduct data analysis and research study

There are 10 sessions in this workshop and each session is 3 hours duration (2pm - 5pm).
