Wolfram Language Crash Course for Scientists & Engineers

October 16, 8am–noon

$175 Standard | $125 Discounted

The Wolfram Language and Mathematica have been employed by scientists for over 30 years as a "Swiss Army Knife" of scientific computing. This class will cover uses especially relevant to physicists, engineers and scientists, from basic architecture to the most recent and advanced features. Among other subjects, we will stress symbolic and numeric functionality, automated physical data access, visualizations, working with geometry, regions and meshes and solving differential equations.

Learn Image Processing with
the Wolfram Language

October 16, 12:30–4:30pm

$175 Standard | $125 Discounted

This new course follows an example-driven format to illustrate and explain basic concepts and methodologies in contemporary image processing. Topics include operations for brightness and color, controlling contrast, histogram manipulation, thresholding, color, image segmentation, geometric operations and image enhancement. Additional advanced topics will be explored during the class according to interest, with course notebooks provided for further study.

The Multiparadigm Data Science Workflow

October 16, 8am–noon

$175 Standard | $125 Discounted

Build your data science process around insightful questions rather than limited traditional methods. This class utilizes a flexible and integrated workflow and teaches you how to work with data in various formats, wrangle real-world messy data into clean computable datasets and perform preliminary explorations. Notebooks from the latest Wolfram U data science course will be provided for further study.

The Data Science Pipeline:
Analysis to Insight

October 16, 12:30–4:30pm

$175 Standard | $125 Discounted

Incorporate automated machine learning into your data science analysis and modeling process and share your insights. Complete the data science workflow with tools for visualizing, reporting and publishing the results of your analysis. Notebooks from the latest Wolfram U data science course will be provided for further study.
