Elements of Machine Learning
Summary 
In this course we will discuss the foundations – the elements – of machine learning. In particular, we will focus on the ability of, given a data set, to choose an appropriate method for analyzing it, to select the appropriate parameters for the model generated by that method, and to assess the quality of the resulting model. Both theoretical and practical aspects will be covered. Lectures will start on October 17th! 

Prerequisites

The course is targeted at students in computer science, data science and AI, cybersecurity, bioinformatics, math, and general sciences with a mathematical background. Students should know the basics of programming, proof techniques, linear algebra, and statistics, for example by having taken Programming I and II (for programming), Mathematics for Computer Scientists I and II (for linear algebra), and then either Statistics Lab or Mathematics for Computer Scientists III (for statistics).
