FAQ

How do I sign up?

Workshop participant slots are limited. If you are interested write an e-mail to Klaus.Strohmenger@HTW-Berlin.de.

Who is the targeted audience?

The course is aimed towards beginners in machine learning and those who want to get in touch with it. Though you should have basic experience in (scientific) python.

I do not want to use docker. Which software packages are required to natively run the notebooks?

Note: This is a provisional list and still subject to change. Please revisit this site one week before the workshop.

  • Python3.6 or greater
  • Jupyter Lab or Jupyter Notebook
  • And the following Python packages:

    • numpy
    • matplotlib
    • pytorch
    • torchvision
    • pandas
    • scikit-lean
    • sklearn

How do I check if my setup is working correctly?

You can test if you have the right packages installed by downloading executing the following Jupyter Notebook file. If no exception is thrown, everything should be fine, though we recommend to also prepare your notebook with docker just in case.

Further, installation instructions for the notebooks can be found here.

What can I do to prepare myself before taking part in the workshop?

For better learning experience we suggest refreshing your Python and numpy skills with this Jupyter Notebook exercise.
