(b) 2-Day Intensive Course and Workshop on Computational Intelligence and Soft Computing using MATLAB

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

On 18 & 19 Sep 2017 (Kuala Lumpur)

Presented by: Professor Michael Negnevitsky, University of Tasmania, Australia

 

The lectures in this course & workshop are based on Professor Michael Negnevitsky’s book, “Artificial Intelligence: A Guide to Intelligent Systems“, 3rd Edition, Addison-Wesley. 

Attend this course and workshop and learn:

  • fuzzy modeling, artificial neural networks, hybrid neuro-fuzzy systems and genetic algorithms
  • what are methods and procedures involved in intelligent data mining including visualization, decision trees, fuzzy modeling, artificial neural networks, genetic algorithms and hybrid neuro-fuzzy systems;
  • how to build and use intelligent systems;
  • how do we choose the right tool for the job.

The workshop participants need no knowledge of any programming language.

 The  methods  used  in  this  workshop  have  been  extensively  tested  through  several workshops given by the presenter for the past decade.

(c) 2-Day Intensive Course and Practical Workshop on ROS: Hands-on with Robotic Operating System under Ubuntu

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

On 18 & 19 Sep 2017 (Kuala Lumpur) and 21 & 22 Sep 2017 (Singapore)

Presented by: Dr Jurgen “Juxi” Leitner, Queensland University of Technology, Australia

 

Special feature of this workshop:

  • The workshop is of practical nature. Topics relevant to create, run and debug robotic systems with ROS — the widely used open robotic operating system — will be covered in the context of a simulated robot.
  • This is an interesting workshop where you create your own code to interface with a simulated humanoid robot.

Objectives of this workshop:

  • The workshop aims to give the participants an introduction to ROS.
  • It will have short presentations about specific topics within ROS followed by hands-on session, where attendees will be able to try and apply the presented knowledge on their own laptops.
  • A variety of useful tools will be presented and the workshop will finish with some best practices and use cases of ROS in a variety of projects.

(d) 2-Day Workshop on Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques using WEKA

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

On 9 & 10 Oct 2017 (Kuala Lumpur) and 12 & 13 Oct 2017 (Singapore)

Presented by: Professor Tony Smith, University of Waikato, New Zealand

 

ThiData Mining - 4th Edition - ISBN: 9780128042915, 9780128043578s workshop is based on the latest edition of the book Data Mining: Practical Machine Learning Tools and Techniques (4th Edition, Nov 2016) using the associated WEKA toolkit. 

Each participant will receive a complimentary copy of this book

Key Features:

  • The workshop is practical in nature.  All topics are presented in the context of using WEKA, the most widely-used open source machine learning software in the world
  • The workshop includes half-a-day of hands-on exercises using WEKA and data sets to do actual data mining.  Participants are expected to bring their laptops to the workshop.

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.
