【Lectures】HSI course, distinguished lecture, and special lectures in summer

From mid July to early August, there will be two lecture series: 1) Lectures on Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning, and 2) Introduction to Big Data and Cybersecurity for Graduate Students.

Lectures on Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning will be offered Monday and Wednesday from Jul. 19 to Aug. 2. They includes three lectures given by visiting researchers from University of Massachusetts Amherst. While given in a regular graduate course, any graduate students and faculty members are welcome to attend these lectures. Registration is not required.

Introduction to Big Data and Cybersecurity for Graduate Students is a graduate course offered in Hokkaido Summer Institute (HSI). The course – run from Jul. 31 to Aug. 4 – consists of eight lectures taught by professors from: Graduate School of Information Science and Technology, Hokkaido University; Information Initiative Center, Hokkaido University, and University of Massachusetts Amherst.

Because the themes of the two lecture series are closely related, interested graduate students are encouraged to attend both of them.

GSB will support these lectures and a distinguished lecture. To see the timeline, visit the following webpage: 2017 Summer Lectures/Seminars at a Glance.
