Welcome Hacker Dojo Machine Learning Class Fall 2010

 

Organizer: Doug Chang

Instructors: Dr. Michael Bowles & Dr. Patricia Hoffman

 

We've put together a calendar for the next three machine learning courses that we're going to teach.  Our objective for the sequence is to enable you to read the current literature, to implement algorithms based on what you read and to extend or modify methods in the current machine learning oeuvre in order to suit the needs of your particular problems.  The first course in this sequence will cover basic techniques in ML at sufficient depth that you will be able to immediately apply the techniques you've learned to real problems. 

 

We're going to use R as our lingua franca for looking at homework problems, discussing them and comparing different solution approaches.    Load R onto your laptop or desk computer before you come to the first class.   http://cran.r-project.org/  We will include some descriptive material on using R in the first two lectures in order to get everyone up to speed on it. References for R are here: References for R Comment on these references here:  Reference for R Comments  More R references
