Machine learning is about developing algorithms that adapt their behaviour to data, to provide useful representations or make predictions. This course is for those wanting to research and develop machine learning methods in future. Those who want a more practical course, focussing more on using methods, should consider taking IAML instead. Informatics’ MSc handbook has more advice on choosing machine learning courses. Prospective students should work through the background material and self-test in the class notes.
ML-Base will run until Friday 30 November. Use it while you can!
Monday–Friday 5–6pm in AT-7.03 (the InfBase room). Drop in to meet other people studying MLPR, MLP, or IAML, and work on the courses together. If you can't resolve problems, a tutor will be circulating to advise.
