Lab Class

You are expected to work through the lab material in your own time, but during the lab period you can ask questions and get help on the material in the lab tutorials.

The main aim of the labs will be to learn how to start visualising and working on a problem via Weka.

The lab sheets are available here. Lab sessions start in week 3 and run through to week 6. They are Tues 15:10-17:00. This is a 2-hour session, so feel free to come at the time that suits you.
