Ten simple rules for making training materials FAIR http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/ten-simple-rules-for-making-training-materials-fair Sharing, reusing and reproducing data, software and other digital objects are the basis for open science practices, and to ease this the scientific community has developed the Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable (FAIR) principles. FAIR principles are however not so simple to understand and adopt, and may be quite convoluted for some. The ELIXIR Training Platform in cooperation with other associated partner ZB MED has put together a Ten Simple Rules for Making Training Materials FAIR which simplify the FAIR principles by breaking them down into very practical steps. This webinar introduced these ten rules and discussed the challenges and ideas to put them into practice. FAIR data FAIR data, FAIR, ELIXIR-CONVERGE PhD students Post Docs Undergraduate students

Deep Learning using a Convolutional Neural Network http://tess.elixir-uk.org/materials/deep-learning-using-a-convolutional-neural-network This course part focuses on a recent machine learning method known as deep learning that emerged as a promising disruptive approach, allowing knowledge discovery from large datasets in an unprecedented effectiveness and efficiency. It is particularly relevant in research areas, which are not accessible through modelling and simulation often performed in HPC. Traditional learning, which was introduced in the 1950s and became a data-driven paradigm in the 90s, is usually based on an iterative process of feature engineering, learning, and modelling. Although successful on many tasks, the resulting models are often hard to transfer to other datasets and research areas. Machine learning PhD students Post Docs
