Class Schedule: Sec 1: TR 11:00 AM-12:20 PM in Eckhart 206


Description: Machine learning systems are routinely used in safety critical situations in the real world. However, they often dramatically fail! This course covers foundational and practical concerns in building machine learning systems that can be trusted. Topics include foundational issues---when do systems generalize, and why, essential results in fairness and domain shifts, and evaluations beyond standard test/train splits.  This is an intermediate level course in machine learning; students should have at least one previous course in machine learning.
