If you already have experience with programming, please check the topics covered in the Learn to Program: Python, Data Manipulation in Python, Data Manipulation and Visualisation in Python and Introduction to ML using Python: Introduction & Linear Regression courses to ensure that you are familiar with the knowledge needed for this course, such as good understanding of Python syntax, basic programming concepts and familiarity with Pandas, Numpy and Seaborn libraries, and basic understanding of Machine Learning and Model Training. Maths knowledge is not required. There are only a few Math formula that you are going to see in this course, however references to Mathematics required for learning about Machine Learning will be provided. Having an understanding of the Mathematics behind each Machine Learning algorithms is going to make you appreciate the behaviour of the model and know its pros/cons when using them. #### Why do this course: - Useful for anyone who wants to learn about Machine Learning but are overwhelmed with the tremendous amount of resources. - It does not go in depth into mathematical concepts and formula, however formal intuitions and references are provided to guide the participants for further learning. - We do have applications on real datasets! - Machine Learning models are introduced in this course together with important feature engineering techniques that are guaranteed to be useful in your own projects. - Give you enough background to kickstart your own Machine Learning journey, or transition yourself into Deep Learning. For a better and more complete understanding of the most popular Machine Learning models and techniques please consider attending all three Introduction to Machine Learning using Python workshops: - Introduction to Machine Learning using Python: Introduction & Linear Regression - Introduction to Machine Learning using Python: Classification - Introduction to Machine Learning using Python: SVM & Unsupervised Learning **For more information, please click [here](https://intersect.org.au/training/course/python207).** 2022-07-21 09:30:00 UTC 2022-07-21 12:30:00 UTC Intersect Australia Australia Australia Deakin training@intersect.org.au [] [] [] host_institution []
  • Learn to Program: Python at LTU Online

    21 - 22 July 2022

    Learn to Program: Python at LTU Online https://dresa.org.au/events/learn-to-program-python-at-ltu-online-c3c7f4bb-bf96-4595-886f-2558dbbf39a9 Python has deservedly become a popular language for scientific computing. It has all the friendly features and conveniences you'd expect of a modern programming language, and also a rich set of libraries for working with data. We teach using Jupyter notebooks, which allow program code, results, visualisations and documentation to be blended seamlessly. Perfect for sharing insights with others while producing reproducible research. Join us for this live coding workshop where we write programs that produce results, using the researcher-focused training modules from the highly regarded Software Carpentry Foundation. #### You'll learn: - Introduction to the JupyterLab interface for programming - Basic syntax and data types in Python - How to load external data into Python - Creating functions (FUNCTIONS) - Repeating actions and anylsing multiple data sets (LOOPS) - Making choices (IF STATEMENTS - CONDITIONALS) - Ways to visualise data in Python #### Prerequisites: No prior experience with programming needed to attend this course. We strongly recommend attending the Start Coding without Hesitation: Programming Languages Showdown and Thinking like a computer: The Fundamentals of Programming webinars. Recordings of previously delivered webinars can be found here. **For more information, please click [here](https://intersect.org.au/training/course/python101).** 2022-07-21 09:30:00 UTC 2022-07-22 12:30:00 UTC Intersect Australia Australia Australia LTU training@intersect.org.au [] [] [] host_institution []
  • Excel for Researchers at LTU Online

    26 - 27 July 2022

    Excel for Researchers at LTU Online https://dresa.org.au/events/excel-for-researchers-at-ltu-online-8b8c7e1b-1ef6-449d-8316-3515b70d9161 Data rarely comes in the form you require. Often it is messy. Sometimes it is incomplete. And sometimes there's too much of it. Frequently, it has errors. We'll use one of the most widespread data wrangling tools, Microsoft Excel, to import, sort, filter, copy, protect, transform, summarise, merge, and visualise research data. While aimed at novice Excel users, most attendees will walk away with new tricks to work more efficiently with their research data. #### You'll learn: - 'Clean up’ messy research data - Organise, format and name your data - Interpret your data (SORTING, FILTERING, CONDITIONAL FORMATTING) - Perform calculations on your data using functions (MAX, MIN, AVERAGE) - Extract significant findings from your data (PIVOT TABLE, VLOOKUP) - Manipulate your data (convert data format, work with DATES and TIMES) - Create graphs and charts to visualise your data (CHARTS) - Handy tips to speed up your work #### Prerequisites: The course has no prerequisites. **For more information, please click [here](https://intersect.org.au/training/course/excel101).** 2022-07-26 13:00:00 UTC 2022-07-27 12:00:00 UTC Intersect Australia Australia Australia LTU training@intersect.org.au [] [] [] host_institution []
