This course is being offered as CSCI 1420 beginning in fall 2013.

How can artificial systems learn from examples, and discover information buried in massive datasets? This course explores the theory and practice of statistical machine learning. Topics include parameter estimation, probabilistic graphical models, approximate inference, and kernel and nonparametric methods. Applications to regression, categorization, and clustering problems are illustrated by examples from vision, language, communications, and bioinformatics. Prerequisites: CSCI0160, CSCI0180 or CSCI0190, and comfort with basic probability, linear algebra, and calculus.
