Who Should Attend?  The workshop is designed for doctoral students, researchers and executives who would like to understand and apply different machine learning and data management techniques  in their respective areas  without  any pre-requisite knowledge of any data science language (like R and Python). This workshop would be valuable for executives and researchers who would like to take up consultancy or research based on data analytics in various industries as this workshop looks at different use-cases in different industries.

The schedule is as follows :

  9.30 – 11 a.m. Introduction to CRISP-DM Framework and       Unsupervised Machine learning techniques     through  Orange  data-mining tool
  11 – 11.15 a.m.  BREAK
  11.15 – 12.45 p.m. Introduction to Supervised Machine learning   techniques, Text Analytics and Machine learning   techniques through Orange data-mining tool
