Introduction to Machine Learning
[Fall 2017]

Course Description

Machine learning describes the development of algorithms whose parameters can be adjusted (i.e., learned) based on data in order to recognize patterns and make decisions. This course will introduce the fundamentals of modern machine learning. We will describe how to implement several practical methods for pattern recognition (regression and classification), clustering, and dimensionality reduction, as well as methods for training and evaluating learned models.
