LENS Machine Learning School 2021
09 Mar 2021



In the week commencing 15 February 2021, over 80 participants attended a machine learning school for beginners and intermediates, aimed at neutron and muon facilities staff.


The school was run by lecturers from across Europe: ISIS, PSI, ESS, ILL, and MLZ with additional support from the STFC's SciML group and the Jülich Supercomputing Centre. Lectures covered everything from the very basics of how a neural network operates all the way up to training a neural network to play Mrs pacman, with a fair dose of more traditional methods in the middle. While attendance to the lectures and tutorials had to be limited, the resources, including videos of most of the lectures, are now all online and available for anyone to access.

We encourage anyone with an interest in machine learning to go through the material and join our slack channel​ for hints, tips and discussion of the projects going on across the European neutron and muon sources.
