Python for Scientific Computing and TensorFlow for Artificial Intelligence

12th January to 18th January
This hands-on workshop is designed for anyone in the MMU community who wants to learn how to use Python for Scientific Computing and TensorFlow for Artificial Intelligence (AI) programming. No prior knowledge of Python or programming is required to benefit from this workshop.
Please click here to read the full brochure for this workshop. The main objective of this workshop is to introduce delegates to Scientific Computing using Python and Artificial Intelligence using TensorFlow. Participants will be introduced to Python and Scientific Computing before moving on to Artificial Intelligence. The workshop will focus on the Python and TensorFlow programs and NOT on the mathematical theory. This workshop is aimed at a large professional audience: from academics and technicians, advanced undergraduate and graduate students to applied mathematicians, engineers, and researchers in a broad range of disciplines such as biology, chemistry, computing, economics, nonlinear optics, neural networks, population dynamics and physics. The workshop includes practical, hands-on sessions where participants are given the opportunity to apply in practice the theory they have learnt. All Python and TensorFlow program files can be downloaded through GitHub. The workshop will help to develop a practical understanding of how Python can be used to solve real-world problems and provide scientists with a means of presenting their results. If you would rather have a more gentle introduction to Python you can attend a one-day workshop on "Python for A-Level Mathematics and Beyond" This workshop will be running again May 30th to June 3rd 2022. Delegates are welcome to attend both workshops! This course is completely free for all students, whereas similar Python courses at other institutions and in industry can cost upwards of £750! For example:
  1. Goldsmiths, University of London. £750 for a 5-day course – “Introduction to Python, Data Analysis and Programming
  2. QA: A World Leading Tech and Digital Skills Training Company, £3115 + VAT for a 4-day course. “Python 3 Programming"
  3. NobleProg: An international training and consultancy group, £5220 Classroom 28 hours, "Python Programming"
Note: This activity takes place before the commencement of Block 3, but you may still have assessments associated with your programme. It is important that you prioritise those commitments, even if this means missing bits of the week.
