Dresden Deep Learning Hackathon
9 - 13 September 2019
Dresden, GermanyDresden Deep Learning Hackathon https://www.denbi.de/training/636-dresden-deep-learning-hackathon https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/dresden-deep-learning-hackathon Educators: Florian Jug, Peter Steinbach, others (DAIS/CIBI) Date: 09.09.2019 – 13.09.2019 Location: SLUB, Klemperer-Saal Zellescher Weg 18 01069 Dresden Germany Contents: The Dresden Deep Learning Hackathon ( #d3hack2019 ) is meant to bring together machine learning experts and scientific practitioners. Teams of 2-4 scientists can apply for the hackathon given a scientific problem they want to solve with machine learning. Upon approval, they will be assisted by one or two machine learning experts for 5 days consecutively! This effort is meant to give your team a head-start and potentially create an end-to-end machine learning solution for your science. The teams are motivated to publish a scientific paper about the hackathon efforts at dedicated conferences or in established journals - at best jointly with their mentors - after the hackathon. A win-win situation for all parties involved. The scope of scientific domains that can apply is not limited. For sure, our mentors have a given background mostly with regard to 2D or 3D images. So we will try to match that as close as possible. However, we are still in the process of fixing mentors (we have expressions of interest of about 5 more than listed below). We will also consider a limited amount of applications using standard machine learning (MLP, SVM, RandomForests,...). If you are unclear whether your topic fits the hackathon, please reach out to us. Most importantly, any team without a readily available data set for training will be discarded from the candidate list. In other words, if you are interested in applying machine learning to your data, you shouldn't use the hackathon to annotate your data. The workshop admission fee amounts to € 300 per participant to cover room rent and catering. We are still looking for sponsors, so there is a non-negligible probability that the admission fee will be reduced in the future. The call for applications closes on June 30, 2019, at 12pm AoE! After this date, a review board of mentors and organizers will judge the applications and send out confirmations to the applications until mid July the latest. The registration mechanism of participants will be circulated then. For members of non-academic institutions: We cannot allow applications from non-academic institutions or industry to our hackathon. If you want to participate with a project as a company, this project needs to be embedded in a scientific group and the majority of team members need to be employed by a scientific institution. On top, the results of the hackathon are expected to be published. So be prepared to undisclose your results and (at best) the data and code which produced these results. Learning goals: - Fundamentals of deep learning with CNNs. - Keras API with the Tensorflow backend. - How to define your deep net. - How to train it. Prerequisites: Bring your own laptop. Keras and Tensorflow backend should already be installed. (We will have GPU nodes you can use if your laptop does not offer a fast GPU.) Solid understanding of the fundamentals of linear algebra. Programming skills (never programmed… that will not work out, sorry!) Keywords: DeepLearning, Keras, Tensorflow, Python Tools: Keras, Python, Tensorflow 2019-09-09 09:00:00 UTC 2019-09-13 17:00:00 UTC de.NBI Dresden, Dresden, Germany Dresden Dresden Dresden Germany    workshops_and_courses  
ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum: Distributed Data Analysis - The (Health) Data Train
10 - 11 October 2019
Utrecht, NetherlandsELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum: Distributed Data Analysis - The (Health) Data Train https://www.elixir-europe.org/events/sme-2019-utrecht https://tess.elixir-europe.org/events/elixir-innovation-and-sme-forum-distributed-data-analysis-the-health-data-train The Innovation and SME Forum on 10-11 October with a focus on “distributed data analysis - the (health) data train” in Utrecht is open to researchers working in the data driven life-science sector, large and small companies that develop services for data management and sharing, as well as people involved in national healthcare initiatives and anyone else who is interested in learning more about data-driven innovation in the life-science sector. The concept of distributed data analysis as contained in the FAIR Data Train approach has been endorsed by the Dutch government in a letter to the Dutch Parliament in December 2018. Meanwhile, the Dutch Government is preparing to implement this novel strategy in the Dutch health care information system. This signals the emerging market for FAIR-based distributed analysis approaches beyond the science domain. The ELIXIR-NL public-private network is closely involved in specification and implementation. This event contains a mix of high-level keynote speakers and interactive sessions to discuss and interact with other companies and ELIXIR partners. A specific session with Flash Talks, will give SMEs and Start-Ups the chance to introduce their work to a broad audience. This event is a collaborative effort, organised by ELIXIR Netherlands (DTL) in collaboration with several DTL SME partners. More generally, the event aims to inform about ELIXIR resources and create a space to network for industry and academia. What people think about previous events: "The ELIXIR Innovation and SME Forum was a great opportunity for us to interact with ELIXIR and also other SME organisations to share ideas and better understand how ELIXIR together with small and large companies can help bridging the "digital islands" of information and provide true value for life science stakeholders, researchers and in the ned, the patients." - Henrik Plym-Forshell, BC Platforms, Sweden 2019-10-10 09:00:00 UTC 2019-10-11 00:00:00 UTC Jongerius Kantoor - Villa Jongerius, Utrecht, Netherlands Jongerius Kantoor - Villa Jongerius Utrecht Netherlands 3527
