Instructor(s): Yuxin Chen

Teaching Assistant(s): TBA

Class Schedule: Sec 1: TR 9:30 AM-10:50 AM in Ryerson 251

Description: This course introduces the foundations of machine learning and provides a systematic view of a range of machine learning algorithms. Topics covered include two parts: (1) a gentle introduction of machine learning: generalization and model selection, regression and classification, kernels, neural networks, clustering and dimensionality reduction; (2) a statistical perspective of machine learning, where we will dive into several probabilistic supervised and unsupervised models, including logistic regression, Gaussian mixture models, and generative adversarial networks.
