Instructors: Dr. Michael Bowles & Dr. Patricia Hoffman

 

Overview of the course

Machine Learning 102 will cover unsupervised learning and fault detection. 

 

The class begins at the level of elementary probability and statistics and from that background surveys unsupervised learning and fault detection.  The class will give participants a working knowledge of these techniques and will leave them prepared to apply those techniques to real problems.  To get the most out of the class, participants will need to work through the homework assignments. 

 

Prerequisites

This class assumes a moderate level of computer programming proficiency.  We will use R (the open source statistics language) for the homework and for the examples in class.  We will cover some of the basics of R and do not assume any prior knowledge of R.  You can find references to how to use R on this website and we will give out sample code during classes that will help get you started. 

 

You'll need undergraduate level background in probability, calculus, linear algebra and vector calculus.  We will cover most of what is required during the lectures.  The appendices in the back of the Tan text are more than sufficient level for this class. 

 

They second five week session (Machine Learning 102) will culminate in the students giving presentations on papers they have read.

 

Why use R?

We're going to use R as our lingua franca for looking at homework problems, discussing them and comparing different solution approaches.    Load R onto your laptop or desk computer before you come to the first class.   http://cran.r-project.org/  We will include some descriptive material on using R in the first two lectures in order to get everyone up to speed on it.
