Basic Chemometrics PLUS Online

February 16, 2021 - March 4, 2021

Eigenvector Research, Inc. is pleased to announce Basic Chemometrics PLUS Online. This series of instructor-led courses includes our introductory block of machine learning courses, PLUS a selection of never before offered online advanced and specialty topics. All classes are live and include hands-on exercises with our PLS_Toolbox and Solo software. Courses are led by the Eigenvector staff including PLS_Toolbox creator Barry M. Wise and Eigenvector co-founder Neal B. Gallagher. Basic Chemometrics PLUS will be Online Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from February 16 though March 4, 2021.

Target audience

Our Chemometrics and Machine Learning courses are aimed at engineers, chemists and other scientists who want to be able to analyze their own laboratory or process data, develop their own data models or develop instruments that produce analytical data. The courses are especially well suited for those with an interest in process analytical technology (PAT) in the pharmaceutical, oil and gas industries, as well as those involved with metabolomics, and systems biology. The courses are also useful for those that manage staff that generate and analyze data. The courses serve individuals with a need for exploratory data analysis, development of predictive models such as analytical instrument calibrations, sample classification, soft sensor models, multivariate statistical process control, fault detection, instrument standardization and sample classification. No prior knowledge is needed to begin this series of courses, although some knowledge of basic statistics and elementary linear algebra is useful.

About the instructors

The entire Eigenvector staff will participate in Basic Chemometrics PLUS. This includes Eigenvector Research President and PLS_Toolbox creator Barry M. Wise, Vice-President and co-founder Neal B. Gallagher, Technology Principal Bob Roginski, Senior Data Scientist Manny Palacios, and Software Developers R. Scott KochDonal O’Sullivan and Lyle Lawrence.

How our online courses work

Our courses are delivered using WebEx online conferencing tools. The instructor(s) deliver the lectures and show how to use our software to develop chemometrics models. Student can ask questions through the WebEx chat feature. Questions are answered either directly in the chat or are passed by the moderator to the speaker. The sessions are recorded and made available to the attendees through a password protected area on our Vimeo channel. Participants have access to the recorded sessions for one year after the class.

Participants can follow along with exercises using PLS_Toolbox or Solo. Our free demo copies will work just fine for the courses.
