Format: Zoom webinar


On Thursday 9th December at 5pm GMT we explored Eigen - a C++ Template Library for linear algebra and matrix manipulation. Eigen is a foundational library used by many projects including TensorFlow for ML, and ROS the Robotic Operating System.

The webinar gave practical demonstrations of using Eigen in software projects. We looked at how to include Eigen in the build process and also how to use basic features of dense and sparse matrices. We focused on Eigen’s ease of use, and simplicity for getting functionality up and running. Finally, provided an introduction to some forthcoming features being proposed for Eigen.

The webinar assumed no previous experience with Eigen. Although a basic understanding of linear algebra and graph theory was useful, the needed concepts and techniques were introduced in the webinar. Basic understanding of C++ and usage of templates was required.
