Abstract

This course gives a fundamental introduction to machine learning (ML) with an emphasis on statistical aspects. In the course, we focus on both the theoretical foundation for ML as well as the application of ML methods.

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.

Formal prerequisites
The course is only open to BSc DS third semester.
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.
