Course Syllabus


Abstract: This course introduces the students to the elements of machine learning, including supervised and unsupervised methods such as linear and logistic regressions, splines, decision trees, support vector machines, bootstrapping, random forests, boosting, regularized methods and much more. The two modules (Sept-Dec, 2020) use Python programming language and popular packages to investigate and visualize datasets and develop machine learning models. The next two modules (Jan - May, 2021) use R programming language to prepare students for the exam from the University of London (UoL) and London School of Economics (LSE), which will count towards the grade of DBSA and ICEF students. Pre-requisites: at least one semester of calculus on a real line, vector calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics, computer programming in high level language such as Python or R.
Learning Objectives

Learning Objectives

  • The course aims to help students develop an understanding of the process to learn from data, familiarize them with a wide variety of algorithmic and model based methods to extract information from data, teach to apply and evaluate suitable methods to various datasets by model selection and predictive performance evaluation.
Expected Learning Outcomes

Expected Learning Outcomes

  • Build features suitable for the selected machine learning models
  • Build and interpret the data visualizations in Python and R programming language
  • Construct machine learning models on the proposed data sets in R
  • Evaluate performance of the models
  • Tune models to improve prediction and classification performance of the models
