Last week the Education Center of the Market Council I’ve been collaborating with for almost six years already, published the announcement of my first author’s workshop. The workshop will take place at the Education Center office in Moscow on 5 of March 2020 in the Russian language.

The Power Price and Consumption Forecast Using Neural Network In Python

Fuck courses?

I do not believe in courses, seminars, workshops, trainings, etc. Last time I attended a seminar was in summer 2007, I was studying SAS base, if I recall correctly. Punto, no more wasted time and money since that time. Self-education is much more efficient! I’ve been self-educating since 2006: read articles, books, PhD thesis, explore tons of MATLAB, R and Python examples. But self-education requires strict discipline, consistency, and unpopular habit to exhaust your brain daily. Any voluntaries? Not many to be honest…

Despite my scepticism towards courses I’ve been participating in an educational process for almost six years with lectures on the forecasting on the Wholesale Power Market of Russia.

Why have I been doing that?

Firstly, It’s a well-paid activity. Most educational centres and the one I’ve been working with is not an exception, pay their teachers for workshops and lecture by a fixed hourly rate.

Secondly, the aim of my lectures is not to teach my attendants but to inspire them to self-educate afterwards. I want them to learn something themselves! That’s why my long speeches are full of new terms and scientist names, vivid stories about the development of mathematical models and calculation tools, names of inspiring books which made me excited when I read them.

Thirdly, and initially in my teaching practice, I would like to help attendants to make the first step in Python and neural networks. Nowadays, Python probably is the most powerful tool for data science problems, and neural networks are in the trend too. To learn these two names from scratch by yourself is tough. Not many dares for it. But when someone helps you to write and run several lines, it’s much easier to go on with new lines and new runs. And in the end, the very first lines could lead the bravest and most persistent ones to a new professional level of modelling practice in their jobs. It’s the aim of my first author’s workshop.

Let’s see if I can manage it.
