Abstract

This is a complete 15 ECTS course on Machine Learning. Building on the math knowledge acquired from the course Linear Algebra and Probability, students will be introduced to Machine Learning during the first part of the course. In the second part, recent machine learning research will be addressed.

Description

The course enables students to analyse machine learning algorithms, implement abstractly specified machine learning methods in an imperative programming language, modify machine learning methods to analyse practical datasets and convey the results.

Subjects include probability distributions; linear models for regression; linear models for classification; deep learning; kernel methods; kernel machines; graphical models; clustering; mixture models and expectation maximization; approximate inference; continuous latent variables; sequential data; ensemble methods; and reinforcement learning.


Formal prerequisites

Linear Algebra and Probability

Intended learning outcomes

After the course, the student should be able to:

  • Discuss, clearly explain, and reflect upon central machine learning concepts and algorithms.
  • Choose among and make use of the most important machine learning approaches in order to apply (match) them to practical problems.
  • Implement abstractly specified machine learning methods in an imperative programming language.
  • Combine and modify machine learning methods to analyse practical dataset and covey the results.
