Machine Learning from A to Z with AutoML: a Hands-on Workshop
This hands-on workshop will cover Automated Machine Learning (AutoML) at a level appropriate for IS majors, non-majors, MBA students, and faculty. AutoML is s
imply machine learning where data cleaning, feature engineering, algorithm selection, hyperparameter tuning, as well as most other steps are done automatically, removing the need for years of training in machine learning and statistics. In three hours, with no programming, we will do what will normally take a data scientist three months. Participants will go through the whole data science process from project objective definition, acquisition and explo
ration of data, modeling of the data, interpreting and communicating results, and implementing the solution. Kai Larsen has won both college-wide and university-wide teaching awards and has taught ML for a decade and AutoML for three years at both the undergraduate and graduate level, and his book entitled Automated Machine Learning for Business is under contract with Oxford University Press.

“Software as a Medical Device: The Regulations and their Impact on Your Business”
Enterprise Ireland and Molecular Medicine Ireland would like to invite you to a seminar looking at software as a medical device at Enterprise Ireland, Eastpoint, Dublin 3 on Friday 20th February 2015, 10.00am to 15.30pm.
With the increasing prevalence and complexity of software in the medical device industry, it is sometimes difficult to determine if the software is a medical device and, if applicable, which classification rule to apply under the European Medical Device Directive MDD 93/42/EEC.
The objective of the seminar is for participants from academia, manufacturing, software developers and clinicians to gain a greater understanding of the regulatory environment, quality management system required and processes and procedures required during the development of a medical device that incorporates software. You will also hear real life case histories of companies/researchers experiences in developing software medical devices.
Registration will remain open up until the 13th February or until a capacity of 48 attendees has been reached.
Register your details on: http://www.molecularmedicineireland.ie/education/course_info/1/301
There is no administration fee for this event.
