The objective of this course is to provide knowledge in machine learning models and techniques. Both fundamentals as well as practical applications are discussed.

After a successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  • Implement different machine learning models.
  • Understand how data can be used to provide new insights into problems.
  • Compare different techniques and algorithms in advanced machine learning,
  • Understand how to choose a model to describe a particular type of data or problem.
  • Evaluate machine learning models in practice.
  • Understand the mathematics necessary for constructing novel machine learning solutions.
  • Design and implement various machine learning algorithms in a range of real-world applications.
