The 2023 Machine Learning Summer School
Great news! MLSS will be hosted in South Africa again from
9 – 20 January 2023
Praelexis, in collaboration with the University of Stellenbosch is bringing MLSS2023 to Cape Town! This time it will be held at one of Cape Town’s harbour towns, Gordon’s Bay.
A Leader in the Industry
MLSS is a course offered to graduate students, researchers and professionals. The speakers are researchers from the industry as well as academia who will introduce fundamental and more advanced topics on a level accessible to all.
Why hosting MLSS
Machine learning is still flourishing. Researchers have developed and are developing the field at an unprecedented pace, and it finds ever more practical applications as awareness of its potential spreads and more data sources become available. Machine learning specialists are in great demand, so much so that the CEO of a large commercial bank recently talked about a talent war. It is therefore not surprising that machine learning has become part of the mainstream curriculum at many institutions of higher education, while, at the same time large corporate institutions embark on in-house upskilling to meet their demands.
The Machine Learning Summer School introduces budding researchers to the latest development in the field, and helps students to learn more about the topic. All of this from world renowned speakers, not only for their research expertise but also for their enthusiasm in communicating their knowledge and expertise to a wider audience.
