Workshop su “Machine learning in the browser” di Marcus Winter

Giugno 14, 2019 @ 2:00 pm 6:00 pm

Aula F5 (Edificio F2), Dipartimento di Informatica Università degli Studi di Salerno

Nell’ambito dello scambio Erasmus con University of Brighton, verrà tenuto un workshop per studenti, da Marcus Winter senior lecturer a Brighton. Il workshop è molto pratico con esperienze con il proprio portatile. Accludo una breve descrizione ed un programma più dettagliato.

Speaker: Marcus Winter

Research Interests: Human-Centred Machine Learning (HCML)

With a background in Human Computer Interaction and Ubiquitous Computing, Marcus’ recent research pivots towards Human-Centred Machine Learning (HCML), focusing in particular on ML applications that directly interface with everyday users. Unlike previous research in this field, which focuses primarily on implicit/indirect interaction with ML systems (e.g. recommender systems, home automation), he is interested in exploring non-expert users’ explicit/direct interacting with ML applications, e.g. to customise a system for a particular context or train it for specific problems.

Workshop: Machine learning in the browser

The workshop consists of a presentation, covering machine learning on edge devices, and an optional practical part where students build, train and run a neural network image classifier in the browser.   


  • Computers, Web cam, Chrome browser, Code editor


  • Medium level JavaScript

Learning outcomes:

  • basic understanding of neural network concepts
  • basic understanding of neural network types and applications
  • ability to build a trainable neural network running in the browser
  • basic understanding how training data affects predictive capabilities
