SGN-13006 Introduction to Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning, 5 cr
Lectures and exercises in English.
||Final examination and exercises.|
This course will provide broad introduction to the fields of Pattern Recognition (PR) and Machine Learning (ML). The course is strongly programming oriented concentrating on models of learning (data structures to establish these models) and methods of learning (algorithms to modify data structures according to training data). After the course students will know the main approaches to machine learning starting from early ideas to the most recent ones and along with their pros and cons. Moreover, students will obtain skills to implement the most basic methods.
|1.||Basic work flow in pattern recognition and machine learning. Linear models of regression and classification as the starting point.|
|3.||Decision tree learning||Random forests|
|4.||Bayesian learning and probability density estimation|
|5.||Prolog language and the principal idea of inductive logic programming.|
|6.||Multi-layer perception neural networks and support vector machines.|
|7.||Unsupervised learning including clustering, self-organising map and linear methods (principal component analysis)|
|8.||Pattern recognition and machine learning in robotics and re-inforcement learning.|
