ECE 4200 - Fundamentals of Machine Learning


     
Spring. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Prerequisite: MATH 2940 , ECE 3100  or STSCI 3080  or ECE 3250  or equivalents. Enrollment limited to: juniors and seniors. Co-meets with ECE 5420 .

Z. Goldfeld.

The course will be devoted to understanding, implementation, and applications of various machine learning primitives. This course is intended to have three modules, and within each we will cover basic theory, and implementations. The modules will be supervised learning, unsupervised learning, and finally topics that are motivated by engineering applications such as speech recognition, and recommendation systems. Supervised learning will include regression, support vector machines, decision trees, random forests, naïve Bayes, boosting and bagging. Unsupervised learning includes clustering, k-means, k-NN, principal components analysis and other dimensionality reduction methods. We will give particular emphasis on engineering applications, e.g., text data, hand-writing, music, image, and time series data, and categorical datasets such those in recommendation systems. The course will have a programming component, which will be administered in the form of assignments, and in-class-kaggle competitions.
