MODULE DESCRIPTION

Machine Learning (ML) is a subfield of artificial intelligence that is concerned with the design, analysis, implementation, and applications of programs that learn from examples or experience. Learning from data is commercially and scientifically important. ML consists of methods and respective software that extract automatically interesting knowledge (patterns, models, relationships) in large databases of sometimes chaotic and redundant information. ML is a data-based knowledge-discovering process that has the potential not only to analyze events in retrospect but also to predict future events or important alterations.

The objective of this module is to introduce the students to the most typical algorithms for data classification, regression and clustering. The subject has a strong technical focus and through learning by doing the students will advance this top field in computer science with growing job options.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

» Learn the fundamentals of machine learning – regression, classification, clustering, short introduction to deep learning.

» Build and optimize (linear, non-linear) data representation models. Model performance and comparison.

» Learn to implement machine learning algorithms in software programs.

» Apply machine learning algorithms in practical problems with different nature.

» Define the problems in machine learning terminology and framework and chose the most relevant approach.
