Alexander J. Smola wrote:With the availability of cheap storage devices our ability to collect and store large amounts of data is increasing exponentially. Machine learning is a branch of applied statistics which aims to bring to bear tools from statistics in the analysis of such large datasets. This course is a biased journey through some of dominant concepts in machine learning. This is an INTRODUCTORY course in Machine Learning. As such, it will cover basic concepts from both computer science as well as statistics. In first part of the course we will review linear algebra, probability theory, and programming at a very brisk pace. In the next 3 - 4 weeks we will work on some basic machine learning algorithms such as k-means, k-nearest neighbors, Perceptron etc. Finally, we will switch gears and cover a number of more advanced topics. Students will have a chance to implement and test a machine learning algorithm of their choice as part of a medium-scale programming project.

Prerequisites:

Strong background in Probability theory, Linear Algebra and Programming are a must.
