|What is it:||Short course|
|Organiser:||Cathie Marsh Institute for Social Research|
/ Five subsidised £60 places available for Humanities staff and postgraduates|
|Who is it for:||University staff, External researchers, Adults, Alumni, Current University students|
Part of Social Data Science Week, a collaboration between the Cathie Marsh Institute and methods@manchester. These courses have been designed for postgraduate researchers, giving you the tools to make use of free and open-source software, and techniques from the cutting-edge new discipline of social data science.
This intermediate course in Machine Learning Algorithms with Python will enable researchers to select the more appropriate machine learning algorithm to help answer their research questions. During the day we will look at a selection of ML algorithms, demonstrate how to use them in Python programs using appropriate Python packages like sklearn. Before using the algorithms, we will consider how well our data meets the assumptions made by the algorithms and we can manipulate the data so as to meet the assumptions.
