While we are collecting and storing more and more data, understanding and interpreting the underlying processes and relationships between different observations remains a challenging problem. The Future Earth Research School on “Data Science and Machine Learning for Climate Research” aims to provide a comprehensive overview of the mathematical foundations of machine learning, with a particular focus on methods for the analysis of complex dynamical systems. Topics of interest include model reduction, system identification, estimation of associated transfer operators such as the Koopman operator, control, uncertainty quantification, deep learning, but also applications in climate science and sustainability.
The course will include lectures given by leading researchers in the fields of machine learning, dynamical systems theory, statistics, and climate science as well as seminars and hands-on sessions.
The goal of the course is to first learn about state-of-the-art machine learning methods, to implement these methods in Python, and to then apply them to real-world problems. Furthermore, we will discuss novel applications of machine learning approaches, but also limitations and open problems.
The course will be held in The University Residential Center of Bertinoro
Bertinoro is situated halfway between the cities of Forlì and Cesena, 6 km away from SS9 (Via Emilia). Forlì is the town of reference for transport by train and bus to and from Bertinoro.
The accomodation will be at the University Residential Center of Bertinoro. Please remember that participation in presence is mandatory.
The school is offering a limited financial assistance to cover the accomodation costs at the Center of Bertinoro over the entirety of the two weeks stay. If you are interested, please check the section below.
For those who won’t get the financial assistance, all the costs will be comunicated during the selection process.
Launches and dinners will be provided and offered by the school for all the students. Students are free to organize themselves at their own expense upon notice. The school will not cover any extra costs.
