Tools for Machine Learning -3 Credits

  • Course Description

    The course will start from the very beginning of the ML basis. First, the basic concepts such as liner algebra; probability and information theory, and numerical methods will be introduced. Next machine learning overview, inductive learning, and representation learning will be introduced. Basic deep learning processes are designed as artificial neural network; Bayesian Networks and learning; Deep learning and deep neural networks; convolution neural network. Throughout the course, practical methodology of using tools such as Tensorflow, Keras or Scikit-learn etc. will be emphasized.
