SGN-13006 Introduction to Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning, 5 cr
Lectures and exercises in English.
Jari Niemi, Joni Kämäräinen
LessonsImplementation 1: SGN-13006 2015-01
Final examination and exercises.
Completion parts must belong to the same implementation
The student understands the main concepts and fundamental approaches in pattern recognition and machine learning. Most main approaches will be covered and their strengths and weaknesses discussed. After this course the student is able to study more advanced topics and courses in pattern recognition and machine learning. Students will also be able to implement basic methods and utilise existing software packages and libraries of machine learning.
|Content||Core content||Complementary knowledge||Specialist knowledge|
|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.|
Instructions for students on how to achieve the learning outcomes
You must actively participate the lectures and do the exercises. In particular, familiarize yourself with the exercise questions before the exercise session.
Numerical evaluation scale (1-5) will be used on the course
