NITTTR, Kolkata

About Workshop


International Workshop on Applied Machine Learning (IWAML) is planned during February 19-23, 2018 at National Institute Technical Teacher's Training and Research, Kolkata. This workshop will provide an opportunity to learn ML from the perspective of mathematical basics to unfold the magic it manifests. We are bringing leading experts from the industry and academia to jointly teach basic and advanced ML. Aim is to provide in-depth training on modern machine learning tools & techniques along with theoretical aspects. Every lecture would be complemented with lab sessions to expose the attendees to appropriate tools (including Microsoft Azure).

Current offering of the workshop is a joint effort of NITTTR Kolkata and BITS Pilani. Workshop flyer is available here.
