Short Courses

On September 8, 2019, we will be hosting two short courses at UAH. We are still working out some of the details. The cost of attending will be $25 for one or $40 for both. Tickets can be purchases here. Anyone who purchases a ticket will be invited to lunch.

Tentative Timeline

  • UAV Short Course: 8 am - 12 pm
  • Lunch: 12 pm - 1 pm
  • AI/ML Short Course: 1 pm - 5 pm


Intro to Artificial Intelligence & Machine Learning

Starting with a breakdown of the domains that exist in Artificial Intelligence, we will walk through a brief history of the work, learn by example some applications of machine learning, and build a few deep neural networks to solve a few problems. We will close with a discussion of current events and Q&A.

Course Outline

  • How to Digest the Domain
  • Shallow History of Deep Learning
  • <break>
  • Data Science Overview & Examples (hands on code)
  • Machine Learning Overview & Examples (hands on code)
  • Deep Learning Overview & Examples (hands on code)
  • <break>
  • Current Events - Data Bias - Ethics
  • Wrap Up - Q&A

 

Intro to Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

This course is designed to introduce the elements of mapping with a unmanned aerial vehicle (UAS).

  • Remote Sensing, Geographic Information Systems, and Photogrammetry
  • Explore areas where sUAS have been deployed as a mapping tool
  • Process aerial imagery and understand the use of 3D models, elevation maps, and geographically accurate imagery mosaics
  • Conduct safe flight operations with important aerial photography considerations in mind to collect the quality information; the “when, where, and how to fly”
