Online Course: Machine Learning in Industry 4.0

09., 12., 19., 21., 23. September 2022
10:00 - 16:00 CEST


Course for industry (SMEs, startups) and public sector
Organised by EIT Manufacturing CLC East in cooperation with EuroCC Austria,  VSC Research Center (TU Wien) and Know-Center
Language: English 
Location: Zoom
Price: 360 EUR/person

Machine Learning in Industry 4.0 is a 5-days interactive online training, especially designed for professionals (such as engineers and other technical professionals, as well as students) interested in the basic theory of Machine Learning (ML) (for example, theory on the ML landscape, support vector machines, decision trees etc.), but who would also like to learn about Deep Learning and its practical application with solving a classification or regression model problem.

By the end of the training the participants will be able to understand the basic concepts of Machine Learning and its application to the Manufacturing and Industry context. The training is interactive with application of real case examples across all days.

For more details please see the course flyer (pdf)


Block 1:
09 September 2022

  • Theory, basic ideas of Machine Learning (ML) & ML landscape
  • Support Vector Machines, Decision Trees
  • Random Forests and Ensemble Learning

Block 2:
12 September 2022

  • Theory and basic ideas of Neural Networks (NN) & Deep Learning (DL)
  • Quick tour of TensorFlow and Keras
  • Solving a regression problem
  • MNIST dataset: The Hello World of DL

19 September 2022

  • Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs)
  • Manufacturing/industry-related examples
  • Transfer learning on CNNs
  • Manufacturing/industry-related example

21 September 2022

  • Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs)
  • Manufacturing/industry-related examples
  • Transfer learning on CNNs
  • Manufacturing/industry-related example

Block 3:
23 September 2022

  • Wrap up, repetition & outlook
  • High-Performance Computing (HPC)
  • Training a NN on an HPC cluster
  • Means and methods of improving performance


The participants are expected to have at least basic programming skills in Python.

Hands-on labs

Participants will use their own laptop or workstation to do the hands-on exercises. We will use
 Anaconda and more detailed instructions how to download the software and setup the environment will be provided to the participants before the course starts. In addition, all participants will get a temporary training user on the VSC for the last course day, any up-to-date browser will be enough to connect to the VSC Jupyterhub and train a neural network on the HPC facilities of the VSC.
