Overview

This course introduces machine learning concepts with a special focus on engineering applications. The course starts with a mathematical background required for machine learning and covers approaches for supervised learning (linear models, kernel methods, decision trees, neural networks) and unsupervised learning (clustering, dimensionality reduction), as well as theoretical foundations of machine learning (learning theory, optimization).

This course will help professionals to obtain the background necessary for excelling careers in machine learning, artificial intelligence, and related fields. We will cover basic concepts of probability prerequisite to understanding the machine learning tools. We will then introduce machine learning concepts such as supervised/unsupervised learning, model identification, clustering, hypothesis testing, and parameter estimation.
