Module overview

Machine Learning is about extracting useful information from large and complex datasets. The subject is a rich mixture of concepts from function analysis, statistical modelling and computational techniques. The module will cover the fundamental principles in the subject, where you will learn the theoretical basis of how learning algorithms are derived and when they are optimally applied, and gain some hands-on experience in laboratory-bases sessions. It will lead to more advanced material covered in later modules.

Exclusions: Cannot be taken with COMP3206 or COMP3222 or COMP3223 or COMP6229 or COMP6246.
