Module overview

Machine Learning advances are revolutionising our world. At a fundamental level, Machine Learning deals with the extraction of useful information from large and complex datasets. There are now many applications, from the automatic understanding and processing of written text, the automatic detection of obstacles in stereo camera images in self driving cars or the recognition of human speech as in virtual digital assistants.

Machine learning is a broad discipline, requiring a basic understanding of many areas of science, from mathematical and statistical concepts to computational techniques. This module focusses on the fundamental concepts of modern Machine Learning for students studying engineering disciplines other than computer science and electronic engineering. The module will cover a range of fundamental principles, introduce state of the art techniques and will allow you to develop the practical skills to implement these techniques to analyses real world data to solve realistic engineering challenges.
