## COMP3670 — Introduction to Machine Learning

code: COMP3670 Introduction to Machine Learning 6 Essential foundations for any machine learning application are a basic statistical analysis of the data to be processed, a solid understanding of the mathematical foundations underpinning machine learning as well as the basic classes of learning/adaptation concepts. Those foundations are bundled in this single, introductory course to machine learning in preparation for deeper explorations into the topic, but also as a standalone unit. https://programsandcourses.anu.edu.au/course/COMP3670 Develop an appreciation for what is involved in learning from dataUnderstand basic data wrangling and data explorationDescribe a variety of machine learning tasks: clustering, dimensionality reduction, regression and classificationUnderstand how to formalise practical problems in terms of above tasksInterpret mathematical equations from linear algebra, vector calculus, statistics, and probability theory in terms of machine learning methodsUnderstand how to perform evaluation of learning algorithms and model selection in practical problems Assignment (40%)Exam (60%)
