Hi all

We are running a 1-day workshop following the main ACCESS-NRI workshop.

TOPIC: Machine learning for modelling and prediction
WHEN: Thurs 7 September; 9:30 AM - 4:00 PM
WHERE: Canberra or online

The day will provide a brief introduction to ML, explore recent progress in the application of ML in modelling and prediction, and include a discussion session on key issues and future opportunities. This session is open to all, and no prior experience with, or knowledge of ML is required.

Register now (before 20 August). More details are provided in the registration link.

Membership of the Forecasting and Prediction WG is not required for attendance. Feel free to circulate the announcement.

Reminder to register by the end of this week for the Machine learning for modelling and prediction FPWG Workshop.

Note that this is a separate registration link from the main ACCESS-NRI workshop.

Register here.

We are looking forward to the FPWG Workshop next week Thursday (online and in Canberra) on Machine learning for modelling and prediction.

If you cannot attend the workshop, you are very welcome to include your thoughts on our Discussion Jamboard. We will be using the Jamboard to share and discuss ideas.

Our main topics of discussion are:

  • ML research interests and collaboration opportunities
  • How can ACCESS-NRI support (data, software, infrastructure, resources/info/guides)?
  • How can we better coordinate across the community?
  • Increasing ML research transparency, increasing collaboration and open source code
    … but there is also a page for any other questions/issues.

The link to the Jamboard is live and we encourage anyone to add their ideas/thoughts at anytime — prior or during the workshop. Apart from facilitating our discussion session, we hope that it will be a useful resource for capturing information and will contribute to informing the outcomes of the workshop.

Hi FPWG

Based on prior WG sessions, particularly our session at the NRI workshop last year, a few of us have drafted a document on how the ACCESS-NRI might be able to support ML infrastructure in the future.

We would very much welcome your comments/additions to the document. Please use the google-docs version for adding your suggestions:
How ACCESS NRI could support ML/AI

The contents of the document are useful for the NRI in considering future investment options.

Thanks!
