The Faculty of Science’s new Computational and Data Systems Initiative will help researchers unlock the power of data-intensive research methods
If you follow science news, you will almost certainly have encountered the term ‘modelling’. From understanding climate change, to predicting the course of a pandemic, to developing the pharmaceuticals to fight one, scientists seem to have a ‘model’ for everything. But have you ever wondered just what the term means and how scientists go about creating models?
The Computational and Data Systems Initiative is seeking McGill faculty members, postdocs or graduate students to teach one or more workshops on python and machine learning topics. Workshop examples include:
> Data science with Python (introductory and advanced level);
> Data visualization with Python (introductory and advanced level);
> Machine learning basics, etc.
