Web Scraping with Python

Modern Languages Building (MLB), Room 2001A

This workshop will provide an overview of how to scrape data from html pages and website APIs using Python. This will mostly be accomplished using the requests, beautifulsoup, retry modules and the browser developer tools. The workshop is intended for users with basic Python knowledge. Anaconda Python 3.5 will be used.

Introduction to Deep Neural Networks with Keras/TensorFlow

Modern Languages Building (MLB), Room 2001A

Deep Neural Networks (DNNs) are used as a machine learning method for both regression and classification problems. Keras is a high-level, Python interface running on top of multiple neural network libraries, including the popular library TensorFlow. In this workshop, participants will learn how to quickly use the Keras interface to perform nonlinear regression and classification […]

Introduction to NumPy (Python)

Modern Languages Building (MLB), Room 2001A

This workshop will introduce you to the NumPy library in Python, which is useful in scientific computing. We will cover NumPy’s n-dimensional array object and associated functions in depth, along with related linear algebra and random number capabilities. Some familiarity with Python is expected. Computers will be available to complete exercises.

CSCAR/MIDAS Workshop on Data, Methodology, and Covid

Your Desktop

Zoom link:  https://umich.zoom.us/j/99072338239   The second CSCAR/MIDAS workshop on Data, Methodology, and Covid will focus on Covid testing and mortality data from the Covid Tracking Project (covidtracking.com) and Worldometer (worldometer.com).  We will develop insight into how the reported PCR testing data from various US states, and from different countries, can be informative about Covid deaths […]

Reading and discussion group: Spatial Analysis in Social Sciences

Your Desktop

This reading group moderated by consultants from CSCAR will focus on spatial analysis especially as practiced in social sciences. We will meet for 1.5 to 2 hours every month on the fourth Thursday and discuss one or two chapters from relevant graduate level textbooks. We will focus on the concepts and applications but will also […]
