Intro to Machine Learning Part 1.
Instructor: Dr. Michael Bowles
This is an intense, one-day short-course aimed at programmers wanting to learn machine learning. The course takes a very hands-on, run-code approach.
9:30 am Registration
10:00 am - 5:00 pm Class (w. break for lunch - delivered)
Class will be delivered by webcast for those want to attend remotely. To get the webcast instructions you must sign up on eventbrite 12 hours prior to start of class.
1. Review of R programming
2. Description of basic machine learning problems
3. Types of data - structured, unstructured, similarity measures, preprocessing
4. Data exploration - statistical summaries, visualization
5. Model complexity, over-fitting and measuring overfitting
6. Sample algorithms and model selection approaches.
Who Should Attend:
The class is aimed at computer programmers, computer scientists and software engineers who want to gain a working knowledge of modern machine learning and the types of problems that it can solve. Class sessions will rely heavily on code examples in R statistical programming language. Participants aren't expected to have any prior experience with R. An introduction to R will be included in the material. The material will cover an introduction to R statistical programming language, unsupervised learning (clustering) and supervised learning (predicting classification and regression – also called "predictive analytics").
