Machine Learning

Logan Ward, Argonne National Laboratory
Webinar Beginner
Machine Learning

Trainees will learn about classical methods in machine learning that are broadly used across scientific domains. The lecture will focus on supervised learning approaches and the concepts needed to successfully use them to solve scientific challenges. Specific topics will include machine learning algorithms including linear, decision tree, and kernel methods; feature generation and representations for scientific data; and application-aware cross-validation methods.

Day and Time: November 4, 3-5 p.m. US CT

This session is a part of the ALCF AI for Science Training Series
