Explore the basics of machine learning with MATLAB at the Faculty of Economics and Business
Workshops dedicated to the fundamentals of machine learning using MATLAB will be held on March 30th from 09:30 to 13:00 in Aula Magna, Faculty of Economics and Business. This session is aimed at teachers, researchers and students who are interested in learning more about MATLAB capabilities for machine learning or want to use low cost hardware platforms for teaching and research. An attendance certificate will be provided to all participants upon completion.
During this session, participants will review typical workflows for both supervised learning (classification and regression) and unsupervised learning (clustering). Techniques such as K-means clustering, discriminant function analysis, decision trees, neural networks, and linear as well as non-linear regression will be covered. Guest speakers will also briefly introduce attendees to more advanced techniques such as deep learning in the context of artificial vision. They will present examples of project-based learning using MATLAB, Simulink and low cost hardware (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, LEGO, mobile devices…), which allow to develop, simulate and test algorithms in a simple way by experimenting on devices available to students.
