Experimental_Design_Workshop_Flyer_20200806-7ccf5702dde09f46

Who should attend? Anyone interested in designing, conducting, or analyzing (controlled) experiments to answer scientific questions involving group comparisons. Description: Obtaining reliable and reproducible estimates of a “treatment” effect and drawing conclusions in any scientific context hinges on sound study design. No statistical analysis can salvage a poorly designed study. Before rushing to pick the “ideal” statistical analysis, we must think about the scientific objective and aims and ask: what is the scientific question of interest? Then we will examine…

Introduction to Data Analysis with R

May 16 - May 17
Zoom

Description This course provides a brief introduction to the fundamentals of the R language and focuses on its use for data analysis–including exploratory data analysis, linear and logistic regression, variable selection, model diagnostics, and prediction. Syllabus Fundamentals of R & RStudio: the basics–including objects, subsetting, indexing, data I/O, and control structures Exploratory Data Analysis: all the necessary tools to investigate your data before performing any formal modeling–from summary statistics to visualization including plotting histograms, boxplots, and scatterplots Linear Regression: everything…

03/08/19 Intro to Deep Generative Models

March 8, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Donald Bren Hall 4011

This workshop aims at introducing commonly used deep neural networks and their application as deep generative models. We will cover motivating ideas and theory behind various deep generative models such as variational auto-encoder (VAE), generative adversarial network (GAN) and flow-based model. You will learn to implement these models to generate realistic looking images in Tensorflow.

03/01/19 A Review of Graph Convolutional Neural Networks

March 1, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Donald Bren Hall 4011

The first part of this workshop will be a review of neural networks in tensorflow and keras. The second part will go into an exciting specific type of neural network called graph convolutional neural networks. There are numerous real-world data in non-euclidean relations. Finding an optimum representation of these types of data can be useful to investigate their hidden patterns and structures. 2-d manifolds in a 3-d space and graph-embedded relations are two important examples of data points in a…

11/09/18 An Introduction to Julia

November 9, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Donald Bren Hall 4011

This workshop aims to introduce both users of scripting languages and advanced programmers to the Julia ecosystem and explore details about the Julia v1.0 language which can help produce efficient and readable code. The goal of the workshop is for students to understand where Julia can be applied and be well-equipped to start using Julia in their own research. Students will learn about the current state of Julia development (IDEs, documentation, where to get help), how to write efficient code…

11/02/18 Topics in R

November 2, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Donald Bren Hall 4011

This course builds on our Introduction to R by teaching advanced visualization and data tidying. In this course, you will cover advanced visualization including ggplot and R Shiny. In addition to visualizations, principles of tidy data and reporting will be discussed. Pre-requisites: 1) familiarity with basic statistical concepts, and 2) intermediate R programming knowledge. For the tutorial, bring a laptop with R downloaded and installed and WiFi.
