SIT Alemira Provides Online Platform for Summer School Organized by Leading European Institutions

CERN, Yandex School of Data Analysis, Laboratory of Methods for Big Data Analysis of HSE University and High Energy Physics Laboratory at EPFL rely on Schaffhausen Institute of Technology (SIT) Alemira to build an online platform for an innovative summer program covering the young area of data analysis and computational research that has started to emerge in High Energy Physics (HEP).

The two-week course, offered by The Seventh Machine Learning summer school, held in July of 2021, is a 100% online Machine Learning High Energy Physics (MLHEP) course that spans a variety of topics. Starting from traditional Machine Learning approaches to Deep Neural Networks techniques. The materials, deployed on the SIT Alemira platform, provide students with an engaging escapade on this new field including the theoretical introduction and practical experience. The ultimate goal is the learning how to apply acquired knowledge better to solve their specific problems.

“Machine learning courses are difficult to transfer between domains. For Physics students to benefit to the full extend, the materials must be prepared with care and attention to detail.“

-Evgenia Kulikova, Head of Yandex School of Data Analysis academic department

Through the SIT Alemira Learning Management System (LMS), students will be able to better engage, interact and connect not only with course materials but also one another and their instructors, creating a more enriched and dynamic online learning environment. The course, built on Pelican, offers concrete examples and hands-on tutorials as well as a special data-science competition designed to allow participants to get better feeling of real-life Machine Learning (ML) applications scenarios. Through SIT Alemira’s digital ecosystem for Active Education, students will gain practical knowledge through transformative online learning.
