The island of Rhodes in the Dodecanese in September will host the 4th International Summer School on Big Data Analysis in Earth Sciences (EarthBiAs2018), which this year will focus on data management and the simulation of environmental systems.
Scheduled to take place between September 3 and 7, the summer school’s agenda will cover a wide range of issues:
- Big Data framework (Spark, TensorFlow)
- Machine Learning on environmental data
- Data management and feature engineering using R and Python
- Deep Learning models on environmental time series data
Special courses will be organized for participants with a background in mathematics, statistics, data science, software engineering, environmental modelling among others. All lectures will be lab-based, presented by academics and industry professionals with a long experience in Big Data and Artificial Intelligence systems.
In addition, a hackathon event will be held on the last day of the summer school for participants and lecturers, who will be called to form two teams and work on an analytical problem.
The summer school is open to postgraduate students, researchers and professionals, from the fields of natural sciences, engineering, computer science and information and communication technology.
