About Machine Learning

We'll be watching videos and discussing the concepts behind machine learning, including supervised learning (parametric/non-parametric algorithms, support vector machines, kernels, neural networks), unsupervised learning (clustering, dimensionality reduction, recommender systems, deep learning), best practices in machine learning (bias/variance theory; innovation process in machine learning and AI). The course will also draw from numerous case studies and applications, so that you'll also learn how to apply learning algorithms to building smart robots (perception, control), text understanding (web search, anti-spam), computer vision, medical informatics, audio, database mining, and other areas. To read more about the course, look to:


Week 1: Supervised and Unsupervised Learning

Week 2: Linear Regression: Cost Function and Gradient Descent 

Week 3: Logistic Regression

Week 4: Neural Networks -- Representation

Week 5: Neural Networks -- Learning

Week 6: Advice for Applying Machine Learning

Week 7: Machine Learning System Design

Week 8: Support Vector Machines

Week 9: Clustering

Week 10: Recommender Systems


This event is intended to be exclusively open for people who identify as women -- queer and transgender friendly.
