This course gives a practical introduction to machine learning, including basic approaches to classification, regression, dimensionality reduction and unsupervised learning. We will cover, among other things, linear classification and regression, nearest neighbor methods, support vector machines, decision trees and neural networks.
After the course the participants should have the skills and knowledge needed to begin applying machine learning for different tasks and utilizing the resources available at CSC for training and deploying their own implementations.
The participants are assumed to have a basic knowledge of Python. See also our online Python materials (under "Recommended topics" and "Python programming", check "Python basics" and "Numerical computing with Numpy").
Each session typically consists of a short lecture and Notebooks exercises.
