  • Online: Data Analysis with R

    27 - 28 May 2021

    Elixir node event
    Online: Data Analysis with R https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/online-data-analysis-with-r R is a language that has become one of the most popular tools for manipulating, visualizing and analyzing data. While there are many R courses, learning these skills can involve a steep learning curve, especially for people with no experience in programming or data analysis. This two-day remote course (delivered via Zoom) aims to help with this initial difficulty by equipping learners with essential skills in using R, including data wrangling and plotting.The course topics include data importing and exporting, handling real-life data sets and creating publication-ready plots with R. The topics will be covered using both hands-on teaching and independent exercises.Learning outcomesAfter attending this course, participants will be able to:- Navigate RStudio- Understand R syntax and how to write R code- Import and export data using R- Use tidyverse for data wrangling- Use ggplot2 for creating high-quality plotsBefore the courseYou need a Haka account to access the course environment. If you do not have one, please contact us (jesse.harrison@csc.fi) as soon as possible after registering. You do not have to install R or RStudio on your own computer, as the course will run on an RStudio environment available on the CSC Notebooks service. Instructions for logging into Notebooks using your Haka login details will be supplied in advance (please also make sure that you are able to log in before the course).Note that the RStudio teaching environment used for the course comes complete with data sets that are not part of a standard R installation. For this reason and to ensure that all participants are using the same R package versions, please do not use your own R / RStudio installation during the course. Prerequisites- No prior experience of programming or using R is expected- No data analysis or statistical experience is required- A Haka account is required to access CSC NotebooksProgramDay 109:00 - 14:30Hands-on teaching via ZoomBasic features of RStarting with dataData manipulation (introduction)14:30 onwardIndependent exercises:Data manipulation (continued)Day 209:00 - 14:30Hands-on teaching via ZoomFeedback and solutions to independent exercisesData visualization (introduction)14:30 onwardIndependent exercisesData visualization (continued)Breaks10:30 - 10:45 (short coffee break)12:00 - 13:00 (lunch break) 2021-05-27 09:00:00 UTC 2021-05-28 14:30:00 UTC CSC - Training Online Online [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] RTESS
  • Online: Introduction to Quantum Computing and Algorithms, 3rd Ed.

    2 - 3 June 2021

    Elixir node event
    Online: Introduction to Quantum Computing and Algorithms, 3rd Ed. https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/online-introduction-to-quantum-computing-and-algorithms-3rd-ed 2-day basic course on quantum computers and the algorithms that control them.Compared to ordinary computers, quantum computers behave very differently. Instead of bits, the basic units of quantum computers are quantum bits, qubits. By exploiting quantum superposition and entanglement of the qubits, quantum computers have the potential to revolutionize high-performance computing. Quantum computers differ from their classical counterparts also when it comes to basic computational operators. Before they can be utilized, quantum computers require tailor-made programs and algorithms. In this course, we will go through the basic operating principles of quantum computers and put the theory into immediate hands-on practice. We will get acquainted with quantum algorithm programming by using Kvasi, the Atos Quantum Learning Machine, capable of emulating a 30+ qubit quantum computer.PrerequisitesNo previous experience with quantum computers is expected. Basic programming skills and familiarity with the Jupyter Notebook environment is an asset, however; a quick overview of Jupyter usage.Schedule9:00 - 16:00 on both daysLecturersJami Rönkkö (IQM) and Mikael Johansson (CSC)Price: Free   2021-06-02 09:00:00 UTC 2021-06-03 16:00:00 UTC CSC - Training Online Online [] [] [] workshops_and_courses [] ComputingQuantumTESS
