The workshop is oriented to give an overview of the Machine Learning basic algorithms and its usefulness in topics related to SINFONIA project. During SINFONIA project several AI algorithms will be developed. This workshop will give an overview to machine learning and will help the project partners to increase their skills in the development of AI and deep learning algorithms.

Prior knowledge of Python programming language is welcome. Students should bring their own laptops.
