About the course

This virtual learning course focuses on the latest developments in model validation for machine learning with special emphasis on evaluation of conceptual soundness and outcome analysis. 

Led by expert speakers, participants will receive hands-on learning experiences using the free, online tool PiML.

Participants will explore how to manage problems associated with over-parameterised and under-specified problems that commonly occur in machine learning models. Sessions will focus on model weakness, reliability and robustness, and will highlight how to use PiML to solidify concepts relating to explainability and causality. 

Case studies and interaction with experts will develop participants’ knowledge about machine learning model validation.
