This one-day workshop on 28 October is aimed at anyone who studied some statistics in the past, and wants to understand the principles of machine learning. There are a number of techniques and ways of thinking that can be useful in any form of data analysis.We will combine discussions about theory and working practices with thought-provoking small-group exercises. You will learn about:

Terminology and jargon

Supervised and unsupervised learning

Ensembles, bagging and boosting

Neural networks, image data and adversarial thinking

AI and ethical concerns

Reinforcement and imitation learning

Big data's challenges, opportunities and hype

Speed and memory efficiency

Concepts of model building such as cross-validation and feature engineering

Options for software, outsourcing and software-as-a-service

Data science workplaces combining statistical expertise with machine learning: what makes them happy and healthy

You can bring a laptop to try out some of the examples in R, but this is not essential. Refreshments and lunch will be provided.Robert Grant is a medical statistician by training, more recently involved in machine learning techniques, who runs his own training and coaching company, BayesCamp. His specialities are Bayesian modelling (he is one of the contributing developers of Stan) and data visualisation (his book "Data Visualization: charts, maps and interactive graphics" is on CRC Press). He is currently test-driving around 20 different commercial machine learning software packages with the aim of publishing reviews and comparisons. He has many years' experience of teaching introductory courses and is committed to making advanced data analysis accessible to everyone who's interested.
