Welcome to the IIT Kanpur Summer Research School (SRS) on PYTHON + MATLAB for Convex Optimization Applications in Machine Learning and 5G Wireless Technologies. Convex Optimization techniques are key enablers for 5G networks, advanced signal processing, machine learning and big data solutions. This summer school is a valuable resource for engineers, data scientists, faculty, UG/PG students and PhD scholars to acquire the necessary skills for research and industry applications in next generation 5G wireless system optimization, sparse signal processing, machine learning and data analytics. This cutting-edge program will feature exhaustive PYTHON and MATLAB projects for various case studies such as Linear Regression, Compressive Sensing, Support Vector Machines (SVM), Massive MIMO, mmWave MIMO. Participants will also be given in-depth exposure to the modern PYTHON and MATLAB programming languages and the CVX optimization package.

Keeping in view the convenience of students, faculty and working professionals, the programs will be held on evenings and weekends. A distinguished expert lecturer will present perspectives on the latest research and applications. The training modules and projects in PYTHON + MATLAB on Convex Optimization for Machine Learning and 5G technology can greatly benefit participants of all backgrounds as described below.

Procedure for Anaconda, Spider and CVX installation for windows:

Please note participants are required to use Laptop with PYTHON and MATLAB installed. Although participants can use any IDE, preferred installation is ANACONDA and Spyder.

Detailed stepwise procedure to install ANACONDA and Spyder for free on windows platform can be found in document below
Installation document

Once Spyder IDE is running, please run this TEST CODE to make sure your installation is working as expected.
