This is an AICTE approved Short Term Program
Department: Civil Engineering
Intended audience: Industry participants, College students, Faculty
About: The objective of this workshop is to introduce the fundamentals of machine learning techniques and develop skills to select the right techniques to solve civil engineering automation problems. The workshop will cover the basics of promising machine learning algorithms with applications to building and construction automation. Practical civil engineering examples and case studies will be used for illustration. Numerical exercises involving the use of simple software tools will be used for understanding the concepts better. There will also be discussion sessions for bringing out potential applications in civil engineering.
Session dates: 19-02-2022 to 26-03-2022 (only on weekends)
Time: 10 AM to 5 PM IST
Last date of Registration: 17-02-2022

This workshop about general idea of where machine learning can be used in construction automation and robotics, the types of ML that are likely to be classified as classification, regression, or artificial neural networks, and a brief description of automation in construction safety and deep learning .
Overall, a great and informative workshop.
