ONLINE COURSE: Data analytics for engineering data using machine learning


This course will be held online with Zoom.

This course is a second instance of the same course provided on December 13-14, 2021 (2021/ML4SIM).

As part of the EXCELLERAT training program, Fraunhofer SCAI in cooperation with HLRS offers a two-day workshop on data analytics for simulation data using machine learning.

This two-day online workshop addresses the preparation, analysis and interpretation of numerical simulation data by machine learning methods. Besides the introduction of the most important concepts like clustering, dimensionality reduction, visualization and prediction, this course provides several practical hands-on tutorials using the python libraries numpy, scikit-learn and pytorch as well as the SCAI SimExplore.

Learning outcomes
  • Basic knowledge on important machine learning methods to analyze numerical simulation data.
  • Moreover, practical experience in applying these methods.
Target audience

Researchers, developers and industrial end users interested in new ways to analyze and visualize numerical simulation data.

Agenda (CET time)

Day 1: 20 January 2022

09:45-10:00 Drop in to the videoconference
10:00-13:00 Introduction to machine learning methods like clustering and dimensionality reduction by means of short practical exercises in python
13:00-14:00 Lunch break
14:00-17:00 Application of the methods from the previous session to numerical simulation data stemming from engineering applications
                      with the help of the SCAI SimExplore

Day 2: 21 January 2022

09:45-10:00 Drop in to the videoconference
10:00-13:00 Introduction to prediction by deep learning methods together with hands-on exercises using the software library pyTorch
13:00-14:00 Lunch break
14:00-17:00 Introduction to interpretability of machine learning methods with the help of the examples from the previous session

  • Preliminary experience with Python is required. Since Python is used, the following tutorial can be used to learn the syntax.
  • Preliminary experience in using Jupyter Notebook is also required.
