CDH Methods | Machine Learning Systems: a critical introduction

Mon 24 Apr 2023


This in-person workshop will provide an accessible, non-technical introduction to Machine Learning systems, aimed primarily at graduate students and researchers in the humanities, arts and social sciences.

Key topics covered in the sessions will include:

  • Situating Machine Learning in the longer history of Artificial Intelligence
  • Machine Learning system architectures
  • The challenges of dimension reduction, classification and generalisation
  • Sources of bias and problems of interpretation
  • Machine Learning applications and their societal consequences

During the session participants will be encouraged to work through practical exercises in image classification. No prior knowledge of programming is required. Participants wishing to run the experiments for themselves will need access to a laptop, but no special software is required, just an up-to-date web browser and an internet connection. We will be using Google Colab for the text generation experiments which you have access to via your Raven log-in. The image classification experiments will require a GitHub account ([sign up hereĀ])

Target audience

This course is open to graduate students and staff at the University of Cambridge. Early career researchers are particularly encouraged to apply.
