The Department of Computer Science & Engineering, School of Engineering, Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham, Amritapuri campus and Amrita Centre for Research and Development ( ACRD), will organize a workshop on Machine Learning in Social Media Analysis on March 2, 2019.


The enormous impact and the huge data available in social media makes it a prime application space for employing machine learning algorithms. The workshop will provide a hands-on attractive coverage of a variety of machine learning algorithms and applications that can be employed to analyze the social media data.
No prior knowledge in the field is required to participate in the workshop. Prior experience with any programming language is welcomed. The workshop will cover social media data mining in Python. The participants will learn basics of the social media data mining environment as well as implementation of different machine learning techniques in Python.
