(please click on the title above for a copy of the brochure)

 17 & 18 Jun 2019 (Kuala Lumpur) and 20 & 21 Jun 2019 (Singapore)

Presented by: Professor Tony Smith, WEKA Project, Department of Computer Science, Waikato University, New Zealand

 

This workshop:

  • Explains how data mining algorithms work;
  • Helps you select appropriate approaches to particular problems; how to compare and evaluate the results of different techniques;
  • Shows you how to use the WEKA machine learning workbench.
  • Covers performance improvement techniques, including input pre-processing and combining output from different methods.

(please click on the title above for a copy of the brochure)

2 & 3 Sep 2019 (Kuala Lumpur) and 5 & 6 Sep 2019 (Singapore)

Presented by: Professor Michael Negnevitsky

Holder of 4 Patents; Listed by the International Biographical Centre in 2000; Outstanding Scientist of the 20th Century and 2000 Outstanding Scientist of the 21st Century.  Chair in Power Engineering and Computational Intelligence and the Director of the Centre for Renewable Energy and Power Systems at the University of Tasmania, Australia

 

Why Attend this Workshop:

  • The workshop participants need no knowledge of any programming language.
  • This workshop is aimed at a large professional audience: engineers and scientists, managers and businessmen, doctors and lawyers who want to understand what Artificial Intelligence is and how to apply its tools in designing intelligent systems and processes.
  • The methods  used  in  this  workshop  have  been  extensively  tested  through  several workshops given by the presenter for the past decade.
  • The workshop will help to develop a practical understanding of what Artificial Intelligence can do, discover which tools are most relevant for your task and, finally, how to use these tools.

This is a practical workshop using MATLAB. Participants are expected to bring their laptops to the workshop.

 

Attend this workshop and learn:
