Gaussian Processes and Application in Machine Learning Workshop( GPAML )
The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Ghana (AIMS Ghana) invites applications from researchers with interests and backgrounds in financial mathematics, stochastic analysis and applications, probability theory, and computational mathematics, statistics and data sciences to participate in the workshop on “Gaussian Processes and Applications in Machine Learning (GPAML)” from 1st to 5th April, 2019. Applicants are required to have an intermediate understanding of Octave/Matlab.
The workshop will be held at AIMS Ghana.
Organized within the framework of the German Research Chair programme in AIMS Ghana, under the Alexander von Humboldt and the German Ministry of Education and Research, the DAAD foundation, the workshop will bring together renowned international and national scientific researchers, young researchers and graduate students.
The workshop will include lectures and the use of tutorial sessions of Octave/Matlab to solve practical mathematical questions.
This Workshop will provide a platform for increasing the cooperation between students and researchers in stochastic analysis and applications on the one hand, and various institutions and research centers on the other hand.
The workshop will give an introduction to the theory of Gaussian stochastic processes and their important applications in machine learning, which include non-parametric regression and classification. GPAML workshop will be based on the textbook with the same title by C. E. Rasmussen and C. K. I. Williams. Lectures will be complemented by computer experiments, facilitated by Peter Frentrup.
Students should bring a laptop with the free scientific programming software GNU Octave installed. The book and related software are freely available at the link: gpml/
Application and Requirements
There will be a participation fee of Ghc300.00 for all applicants who fall out of this category. The participant fee will cover your meals, and workshop materials, and excluding hotel accommodations. Payment must be made immediately upon arrival.
Participants are expected to bring their own laptop (MacOS, Linux, Windows).
For more information, kindly send an email to Ms Rhoda Mahamah via email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The subject of your email should have your full name and the name of the workshop as shown in the example: RhodaMahamah_GPAML2019.
