Machine Learning 202

Organizer: Doug Chang

Instructors: Dr. Michael Bowles & Dr. Patricia Hoffman

 

We will cover several machine learning topics in detail.  Among those are Bayesian Belief Networks, Prof. Jerome Friedman's gradient boosting papers, svd's and recommender systems. 

 

For Machine Learning 202, we assume you are familiar with basic statistical concepts and have the ability to write programs running different algorithms on public data sets. We assume knowledge at the level of "Introduction to Data Mining" by Tan.  If you have taken our Machine Learning 101102 classes and Machine Learning 201, you are well prepared for this course.

 

We expect you to have previously used R.  We will use R for discussing homework problems and comparing different solution approaches.  .   http://cran.r-project.org/  For your review, R are here: References for R,  Reference for R Comments,  More R references.  To integrate R with Eclipse click here.
