As a curtain-raiser for the Datix Hackathon on Machine Learning, Mr Ravishankar S (AP, CSE Dept) organised a hands-on session on Machine Learning (ML) and the software tools for implementing it on 11 April 2019. The session was conducted in the Advanced Computer Lab and as many as 23 students attended the session. The classes started off with an introduction to machine learning and the basic concepts which revolve around it.
The participants were introduced to the different types of ML problems. They were also taught what all software packages were needed for implementing the ML algorithms. Mr Ravishankar demonstrated the usage of the scikit-learn package, a Python based ML library, with examples of linear regression, logistic regression, support vector machine, decision tree, etc models.
