Introductory Machine Learning course covering theory & algorithms.
This is an introductory course in machine learning (ML) that covers the basic theory and algorithms . ML is a key technology in Big Data, and in many financial, medical, commercial, and scientific applications. It enables computational systems to adaptively improve their performance with experience accumulated from the observed data. ML has become one of the hottest fields of study today, taken up by undergraduate and graduate students from 15 different majors. This course balances theory and practice, and covers the mathematical as well as the heuristic aspects.
