Education, Outreach and Training

ARC has initiated and supported several education, outreach and training programs. Experts are available through ARC's Fellows network for lectures, seminars and workshops on a wide variety of themes. Sessions can be tailored to the interest and levels of the target audiance. Some of the themes that are on offer, but not limited to, are:

  • Data-Driven Discovery
  • Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics
  • Big Data and the Cloud
  • Machine Learning
  • Incorporating Social Media and its Impact

The themes can be adapted for different domains e.g. 'The role of Machine Learning in Business' or 'Incorporating Prescriptive Analytics in Theology'.

ARC continues to support other training programs and initiatives, some of which are timetabled regularly. These can be found through the previous sessions and upcoming sessions panel boxes. If you find a course in the previous sessions box but not in the upcoming box, and would like to register interest please contact IARC. Likewise if you would like to arrange a one-off session.
