Who Is This Course For
In general, this summer school provides an introduction to coding and is open to all UK university students who do not have experience in coding or computer science. To attend week 3 on machine learning and AI, it would be helpful if you have some familiarity with programming. This could be gained from attending week 1 of the IoC summer school, or from experience that you may have from outside of the school. However, we will not assume any in-depth knowledge of coding, artificial intelligence or machine learning for this summer school.
What will I learn
Coding Bootcamp (week 1):
This week starts with writing simply python scripts and then builds on your programming skills by learning algorithms, functions, lists, loops, conditions and other basic programming concepts and skills.
Social data analytics (week 2):
This weeks is aimed at covering data analysis using R coding. Students will develop new skills in R coding, handling data in R, data visualisation and statistical comparisons of group means.
Machine learning and AI (week 3):
This week aims to demonstrate the basics of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning, including thinking about AI and machine learning in a wider context, exploring some of the implications of AI for society through a series of expert lectures providing different perspectives regarding the applications of AI and machine learning. An additional thread running through the week is a more detailed and practical introduction to ideas in machine learning, focusing on classification, clustering and generalisation.Visit this course
