Alpha College of Engineering, Poonamallee, is conducting a 21-day workshop on ‘Applied Advanced Programming and Coding’. Dr Rakesh Nigam, formerly from Stanford University, will conduct the workshop.
Normal programming courses in India emphasise the minute details of programming. This course trains participants to think analytically and formulate the problem in such a way that they can be solved on the computer. The topics covered will enable lecturers to solve practical problems and guide students’ projects apart from aiding better teaching and research. Topics covered include ‘Solution and properties of linear and non-linear equations’, ‘Interpolation’, ‘Numerical differentiation and integration’, ‘Optimisation methods’ (ie linear programming), ‘Machine learning’ (classification and clustering), ‘Random simulation methods’ and ‘Advanced topics’ (Reinforcement learning and Image processing).
