Polymathic Making Workshops, Fall 2020

Join us this semester at the Ahmanson Lab for a series of remote, code-based  workshops on P5js, TensorFlow, and D3.js. Workshops in this series are for a general audience and require no prior programing skills or technical expertise.

All workshops will be held on Monday afternoons at 3:00pm


P5js Workshop

After a survey of generative design applications and tools, participants will explore algorithms that produce computational graphics and animations. Participants will learn the basics of writing code in order to create such algorithms using p5.js, a javascript library. No prior coding experience required!

TensorFlow Tutorial Walk Through

A neural network is a set of algorithms, modeled on the human brain, designed to discover and "learn" patterns within massive data sets. These networks are powering a new generation of artificial intelligence and are responsible for radical recent advancements in facial recognition, surveillance, autonomous vehicles, and synthesized speech systems. Participants in this workshop will explore simple neural networks and learn how their algorithms work.
