Summary

Machine learning and data analysis are becoming increasingly central in many sciences and applications. In this course, fundamental principles and methods of machine learning will be introduced, analyzed and practically implemented.

Content

Keywords

Machine learning, classification, regression, algorithms

Learning Prerequisites

Required courses

Linear algebra

Important concepts to start the course

  • Basic linear algebra (matrix/vector multiplications, systems of linear equations, SVD).
  • Multivariate calculus (derivative w.r.t. vector and matrix variables).
  • Basic programming skills (labs will use Python).

Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course, the student must be able to:

  • Define the following basic machine learning problems : regression, classification, clustering, dimensionality reduction
  • Explain the main differences between them
  • Implement algorithms for these machine learning models
  • Optimize the main trade-offs such as overfitting, and computational cost vs accuracy
  • Implement machine-learning methods to real-world problems, and rigorously evaluate their performance using cross-validation. Experience common pitfalls and how to overcome them.
