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.
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 Koch, Donal O’Sullivan and Lyle Lawrence.
