Machine Learning with Python (Jacalyn Huband, Alois D’Uston de Villereglan, Gladys Andino) Thurs, June 9 1:00 – 5:00pm Online
This workshop will provide an overview of Machine Learning techniques using Python. From Random Forest to PyTorch, you will receive an introduction to the topics and sample codes that you can use to test out the techniques.

Prerequisites: Proficiency in Python; some experience with Rivanna.

Deep Learning Matlab (Ed Hall) Fri, June 10 Noon – 2:00pm Online
This worshop will provide a comprehensive introduction to deep learning using Matlab. Attendees will learn how to create, train, and evaluate different kinds of deep neural networks using Rivanna GPUs to accelerate network training.

Prerequisites: Experience with Matlab using Rivanna
