SSA Vic is proud to present this workshop.
Days: 8 Jul 2021, – 9 Jul 2021 @ OnlineTime: 9am to 4 pm AEST each day via Online
This two day workshop aims to enable R users and other data scientists to incrementally incorporate Julia in their workflow. After an introduction of Julia basics, the workshop focuses on the creation of a simple, yet computationally demanding simulation example. This Julia code is then incorporated in R and Python, illustrating how users may create new performant statistical software using Julia while maintaining existing code base in R or Python. With this exploration, participants will learn not just howto use Julia, but also how to integrate Julia into their day to day statistical analysis which may involve R or Python legacy code.
Presenter: Associate Professor Yoni Nazarathy from the School of Mathematics and Physics at The University of Queensland specialises in data science,probability and statistics. His specificre search interests include scheduling, control, queueing theory, and machine learning. He has been at UQ for nearly a decade, teaching courses at UQ’s Masters of Data Science program and working on research. Prior to his previous academic positions in Melbourne and the Netherlands, he worked in the aerospace industry in Israel. In recent years, he has also been heavily involved with primary and secondary mathematics education and is the co-founder of an EdTech mathematics organisations called One on Epsilon. Also, he is the co-author of an introductory data science book:Statistics with Julia, and a co-creator of the Mathematical Engineering of Deep Learning website.Like many other mathematics and physics academics, he took great interest in epidemics at the start of COVID-19 and leads the Safe Blues program. He also has interests in application areas such as power systems,agriculture, and road traffic control.
Required knowledge: Participants should to have prior basic programming experience in a language such as R or Python. They also should have basic knowledge in statistics equivalent to 2 or 3 university courses. Desirable knowledge: Further statistical knowledge would be useful for gaining more insights from the examples presented.
