IEEE Okanagan College Student Branch & IEEE Okanagan Subsection Present (co-sponsored by NSERC ARD L2 GPerf2 research project)
Machine Learning and Neural Networks with R and Tensorflow Workshop
Time & Date: 2 PM – 5 PM, Friday, November 8th, 2019
Location: E103, Okanagan College, Kelowna BC
Talk Abstract: We will be providing a data analysis workshop looking to introduce concepts of Machine Learning and Neural Networks using R and Tensorflow. Our presentation will go over the basic concept of Machine Learning and Neural Networks, then begin gathering and preparing data for use by different algorithms. We will look at the different methods of analysis, as well as the effect of displaying the data in different graphical formats. Finally, we will compare different tools and algorithms in terms of performance and generalizability.
This will be a “bring your own computer” event. Participants will be guided through installing R Studio and Tensorflow, downloading and preparing a data set for analysis, performing visualizations on the data, and running machine learning to create predictions using the data as training.
