Practical Applications of near-infrared spectroscopy and machine learning in medicine, neuroscience and food sciences

We are thrilled to announce this one-day interdisciplinary workshop where participants will learn about the latest developments in non-invasive spectroscopy and machine learning from experts in the field. This is a teaching and research initiative in the framework of the Strategic Partnership between Monash University (Australia) and Padova University (Italy).

The workshop will be designed to offer students hands on experience using the latest near infrared matchbox size spectrometers currently used by the group at Monash and which will be loaned by its commercial partner for the project (Si-Ware). Students will learn innovative methods to record and process near-infrared spectra using basic multivariate approaches. They will also learn to use Quasar, an open-source software for data analysis. The workshop will promote discussions among the participants on how to enhance the collaboration and to earmark some collaborative projects that will involve student exchange and applications for commercial grant opportunities.
