The Introduction to Machine Learning in Geosciences Certificate from University of Pisa is fed by an enormous quantity of available data, machine learning algorithms can learn, without being explicitly programmed, to solve complex tasks such as speech, face, and object recognition or to play and even defeat the best human players at the ancient game of Go.

Machine-learning is becoming an essential skill in many data-intensive scientific fields, including Earth Sciences related disciplines. The Machine Learning in Geosciences program is offered at University of Pisa.

Certificate Aim:

This summer school aim to provide an overview of the main machine learning methods and their application to geophysical, geological and environmental data, keeping a more practical flavour.

After the course the student will be able to use basic machine learning techniques applied to geosciences. The student will learn to identify which ML method is more suitable than others for the analysis of a particular datasets and to evaluate the performance of the used models. After the course the student will also have an overview of the main Machine Learning libraries (in particular SciKit-Learn, Tensorflow and Keras)

Programme Structure

Courses include:

  • Regression (Linear and Non-linear regression techniques)
  • Classification (Logistic Regression, K-Nearest Neighbors and Support Vector Machines)
  • Clustering (k-means, Hierarchical Clustering, DB-Scan)
  • Data Reduction (PCA and ICA)
  • Convolutional Neural Networks for image recognition
