Machine Learning Summer Workshops
Machine Learning Summer Workshops are organized by Faculty of Applied Science at Ukrainian Catholic University. Workshops’ participants – young professionals, students, Ph.D. candidates – will study the methods of the machine learning in the problem domains of Computer Vision, Natural Language Processing, and Reinforcement Learning.
The workshops are all problem-oriented, i. e. study process will be based on the real-world problems and their solutions via machine learning approach. The participants will gain solid theoretical knowledge as well as a lot of practical work.
Please notice that participants’ knowledge and skills level should be intermediate or higher. The students have to be familiar with the basic machine learning methods.
There are will be three totally independent workshops (two of them go simultaneously). You may apply for one or two workshops. The information about particular workshops can be found on separate web pages. Below there are the brief descriptions, lecturers, price and terms information.
Computer Vision workshop, July 3-7
Part 1. Statistical Decision Theory in Computer Vision, Structural Prediction, and Learning
Part 2. To be announced soon…

Organizers can provide discounts which cover up to 30% of tuition fee for bachelor, master, and Ph.D. full-time students from the Ukrainian universities. In order to apply for a discount, the eligible students should fill an additional form and:
- provide the personal statement that explains a discount need;
- provide a letter of reference from a teacher of the home university.
A number of discounts are limited. The organizers are not obligated to explain their decision in a case of the acceptance/rejection of a discount application. Apply for a discount by the link https://goo.gl/cFXUwD.
Eligible applicants should be familiar with machine learning basics, deep learning, linear algebra, basics of statistics. Most workshops will use Python as the main programming language. The specific prerequisites are mentioned on a separate page of each workshop.
Before applying for the workshop(s) one should become familiar with the terms of service, application rules, fee payment procedure, study schedule, certificate issuance, accommodation resources. Please, follow the “Terms of service” web page to read more.
