Event Introduction

IIM Bangalore’s Data Centre & Analytics Lab (DCAL) will host workshops on Machine Learning using Julia and Natural Language Processing from July 16 to 18, 2021, from 09:30 am to 01:15 pm.

Please note that the last date for registration and payment for the workshops is July 03, 2021. Participants will be provided e-certificates after completion of the event.

Due to current restrictions on crown gatherings, the workshops will be hosted on the virtual platform.

The DCAL at IIMB has been set up to support interdisciplinary empirical research using data on primarily Indian as well as other emerging markets. The vision of this initiative is to be India’s most comprehensive research data source.
