Nikolas Andreakos is a PhD candidate at the University of Lincoln, working on developing computational models of associative memory formation and recognition in the mammalian hippocampus. Nikolas attended the CVML Short Course: Machine Learning and Deep Neural Networks which took place as a live web course on 17-18th February 2021. This short course was hosted by Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUTH).
About CVML Short Course: Machine Learning and Deep Neural Networks
This two-day short course focused on Machine Learning and Deep Neural Network theory, their applications in the below-mentioned diverse domains, and new challenges ahead.
- Autonomous Systems (cars, drones, vessels),
- Media Content and Art Creation (including fake data creation/detection), Social Media Analytics,
- Medical Imaging and Diagnosis,
- Financial Engineering (forecasting and analytics), Big Data Analytics,
- Broadcasting, Internet and Communications,
- Intelligent Human-Machine Interaction, Anthropocentric (human-centred) Computing,
- Smart Cities/Buildings and Assisted living.
- Scientific Modeling and Analytics.
The course consisted of two parts (A, B), and each of them included 8 one-hour lectures and related material (slide pdf, lecture videos, understanding questionnaires).
Part A lectures (8 hours) provided an in-depth presentation of Deep Neural Networks, which are at the forefront of AI advances today, starting with an introduction to Machine Learning.
Part B lectures (8 hours) provided a fan in-depth presentation of Machine Learning to complement DNNs.

When asked about his experience, Nikolas said:
“Overall, it was a very well structured course and helped me to extend and strengthen my knowledge in ML and DL. Now I feel more comfortable using this knowledge in my project since computational neuroscience and ML could drive each other forward by using ideas from one domain to another”.
