Stereo-video workflows for fish and benthic ecologists https://dresa.org.au/materials/stereo-video-workflows-for-fish-and-benthic-ecologists Stereo imagery is widely used by research institutions and management bodies around the world as a cost-effective and non-destructive method to research and monitor fish and habitats (Whitmarsh, Fairweather and Huveneers, 2017). Stereo-video can provide accurate and precise size and range measurements and can be used to study spatial and temporal patterns in fish assemblages (McLean et al., 2016), habitat composition and complexity (Collins et al., 2017), behaviour (Goetze et al., 2017), responses to anthropogenic pressures (Bosch et al., 2022) and the recovery and growth of benthic fauna (Langlois et al. 2020). It is important that users of stereo-video collect, annotate, quality control and store their data in a consistent manner, to ensure data produced is of the highest quality possible and to enable large scale collaborations. Here we collate existing best practices and propose new tools to equip ecologists to ensure that all aspects of the stereo-video workflow are performed in a consistent way. tim.langlois@uwa.edu.au stereo-video, fish, sharks, habitats

10 Reproducible Research things - Building Business Continuity https://dresa.org.au/materials/9-reproducible-research-things-building-business-continuity The idea that you can duplicate an experiment and get the same conclusion is the basis for all scientific discoveries. Reproducible research is data analysis that starts with the raw data and offers a transparent workflow to arrive at the same results and conclusions. However not all studies are replicable due to lack of information on the process. Therefore, reproducibility in research is extremely important. Researchers genuinely want to make their research more reproducible, but sometimes don’t know where to start and often don’t have the available time to investigate or establish methods on how reproducible research can speed up every day work. We aim for the philosophy “Be better than you were yesterday”. Reproducibility is a process, and we highlight there is no expectation to go from beginner to expert in a single workshop. Instead, we offer some steps you can take towards the reproducibility path following our Steps to Reproducible Research self paced program.

Deep Learning for Natural Language Processing https://dresa.org.au/materials/deep-learning-for-natural-language-processing This workshop is designed to be instructor led and consists of two parts. Part 1 consists of a lecture-demo about text processing and a hands-on session for attendees to learn how to clean a dataset. Part 2 consists of a lecture introducing Recurrent Neural Networks and a hands-on session for attendees to train their own RNN. The Powerpoints contain the lecture slides, while the Jupyter notebooks (.ipynb) contain the hands-on coding exercises. This workshop introduces natural language as data for deep learning. We discuss various techniques and software packages (e.g. python strings, RegEx, NLTK, Word2Vec) that help us convert, clean, and formalise text data “in the wild” for use in a deep learning model. We then explore the training and testing of a Recurrent Neural Network on the data to complete a real world task. We will be using TensorFlow v2 for this purpose. datascienceplatform@monash.edu Deep learning, NLP, Machine learning

Visualisation and Storytelling https://dresa.org.au/materials/visualisation-and-storytelling This workshop explores how data visualisation techniques could be utilised to better understand data and to communicate research efforts and outcomes. The workshop covers a broad range of techniques from simple and static 2D graphics to advanced 3D visualisations in order to provide a broad overview of the tools available for data analysis, presentation and storytelling. We explore, among others, animated charts and graphs, web visualisation tools such as scrollytellers, and the possibilities of 3D, interactive, and even immersive visualisations. We use real world, concrete examples along the way in order to tangibly illustrate how these visualisations can be created and how viewers perceive and interact with them. We also introduce the various tools and skill sets you would need to be proficient at presenting your data to the world. By the conclusion of this workshop, you would gain familiarity with the various possibilities for presenting your own research data and outcomes. You would have a more intuitive understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of various modes of data visualisation and storytelling, and would have a starting point to obtain the right skill sets relevant to developing your visualisations of choice. datascienceplatform@monash.edu data visualisation, storytelling

Semi-Supervised Deep Learning https://dresa.org.au/materials/semi-supervised-deep-learning Modern deep neural networks require large amounts of labelled data to train. Obtaining the required labelled data is often an expensive and time consuming process. Semi-supervised deep learning involves the use of various creative techniques to train deep neural networks on partially labelled data. If successful, it allows better training of a model despite the limited amount of labelled data available. This workshop is designed to be instructor led and covers various semi-supervised learning techniques available in the literature. The workshop consists of a lecture introducing at a high level a selection of techniques that are suitable for semi-supervised deep learning. We discuss how these techniques can be implemented and the underlying assumptions they require. The lecture is followed by a hands-on session where attendees implement a semi-supervised learning technique to train a neural network. We observe and discuss the changing performance and behaviour of the network as varying degrees of labelled and unlabelled data is provided to the network during training. datascienceplatform@monash.edu Deep learning, Machine learning, semi-supervised

Part 1 - Introduction to Deep Learning and TensorFlow Part 2 - Introduction to Convolutional Neural Networks The Powerpoints contain the lecture slides, while the Jupyter notebooks (.ipynb) contain the hands-on coding exercises. This workshop is an introduction to how deep learning works and how you could create a neural network using TensorFlow v2. We start by learning the basics of deep learning including what a neural network is, how information passes through the network, and how the network learns from data through the automated process of gradient descent. Workshop attendees would build, train and evaluate a neural network using a cloud GPU (Google Colab). In part 2, we look at image data and how we could train a convolution neural network to classify images. Workshop attendees will extend their knowledge from the first part to design, train and evaluate this convolutional neural network. datascienceplatform@monash.edu Deep learning, convolutional neural network, tensorflow, Machine learning
