Data Science Workshops

The DSI regularly offers workshops to familiarize students, faculty, and community members new and exciting with data science tools. Workshops are open to the entire Vanderbilt community.

Spring 2023 Offerings

Using ChatGPT through Prompt Engineering (virtual), Wednesday, March 22, 4:00 – 5:00 pm

ChatGPT and other AI models mark a groundbreaking step forward in artificial intelligence. These tools can be a valuable tool for your teaching and research, if you can master how to use them with Prompt Engineering. Vanderbilt University’s Data Science Institute is hosting a hands-on workshop on how to work with these models, and the types of prompts you can use solve problems and build solutions in you teaching and research.

Understanding Text-to-Image Models workshop (virtual), Monday, Feb. 27

Stable diffusion models have been shown to have incredible success generating realistic images. Models like DALL-E have shown the power to generate brand-new photo-realistic scenes, in addition to mimicking and transferring an art style onto existing photos. These models can be used in a variety of ways and experimentation with them can be easy. However, getting the image you’re looking for requires a careful selection of the input prompt and an understanding of the parameters of stable diffusion models.

The Data Science Institute is offering a chance to go in-depth on prompt engineering at a workshop open to the Vanderbilt community. Understanding Text-to-Image Models: Dall-E, Stable Diffusion, and more will be held from noon to 1p.m. on February 27.
