  • We will set up a Python virtual environment and run JupyterLab on the HPRC Portal.

  • Lab 2 - Data Exploration (30 mins)
  • We will go through simple examples with two popular Python modules: Pandas and Matplotlib for simple data exploration.

  • Lab 3 - Machine Learning (30 minutes)
  • We will learn to use scikit-learn for linear regression and classification applications.

  • Lab 4 - Deep Learning (30 minutes)
  • We will learn how to use Keras to create and train a simple image classification model with deepneural networks (DNN)
