About this course - learning outcomes
DSF 5 Machine Learning with Python

Basic introduction on how to perform typical machine learning tasks with Python.

Learning outcomes
  • Day 1:
    • Overview of machine learning pipelines and their implementation with scikit-learn
    • Regression and Classification: linear models and logistic regression
    • Decision trees & random forest models
    • Principal component analysis (PCA) and non-linear embeddings (t-SNE and UMAP)
    Day 2:
    • Clustering with K-means and Gaussian mixtures
    • Artificial Neural networks as general fitters, fully connected nets used to classify the fashion-MNIST dataset
    • Scikit-learn and clustering maps, Q&A
Target group

About ScITS
PD Dr. Sigve Haug

Sigve studied physics in Germany, Spain and Norway. He has been involved in neutrino physics experiments and high energy frontier experiments, often with main focus on the computing challenges related to the large and distributed data from these experiments. Today he is working for the Albert Einstein Center for fundamental Physics and the Mathematical Institute of the University of Bern where is leading the Science IT Support unit. 

The Science IT Support is there to boost your research by supporting you solving computing challenges. 
Your code doesn't compile, you need more computing power, more storage, a data mangament plan and
so on - drop an email, call or pass by our office. Cheers, Sigve
