Description: Machine learning is the process of automatically inferring a function from a set of data. In essence, machine learning techniques seek to automate the inductive learning process that humans do so well. Furthermore, the availability of large training sets combined with significant computing power has made machine learning an extremely important body of knowledge across a large range of application domains. A small sample of some of the application domains include robotics, medicine, speech/facial recognition, and driving autonomous vehicles. This course will focus on providing a foundational understanding of modern algorithms in machine learning, focusing on practical applications.
