Machine Learning is nowadays one of the most rapidly developing technical fields both in the academia and industry. It is also a fundamental tool used in a wide range of different data science fields. This course presents the basic concepts, techniques, and algorithms in machine learning from both theoretical and practical perspective. The program of the course includes empirical risk minimization, support vector machines, kernels, clustering, principal component analysis,Expectation-Maximization, graphical models, and neural networks.
There is no textbook required. The list of recommended texts:
Pattern recognition and machine learning, C.M. Bishop
Pattern classification, R. O. Duda, P. E. Hart, and D.G. Stork
T. Jebara. Course notes, Machine Learning
S. Dasgupta. Course notes, CSE 291: Topics in unsupervised learning
For coding, preferred environments is Matlab. Data sets for programming questions will be provided in Matlab format. However a student can choose any environment he/she likes and convert data sets to a desired format. Homeworks are due at 10.45am on the given day. Late submissions will not be approved!!!

The NYU Tandon School values an inclusive and equitable environment for all our students. I hope to foster a sense of community in this class and consider it a place where individuals of all backgrounds, beliefs,ethnicities, national origins, gender identities, sexual orientations, religious and political affiliations, and abilities will be treated with respect. It is my intent that all students’ learning needs be addressed both in and out of class, and that the diversity that students bring to this class be viewed as a resource, strength,and benefit. If this standard is not being upheld, please feel free to speak with me.
I personally will have zero tolerance to acts of racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia, or any other known form of discrimination. You get caught; you will face consequences. No exceptions, no excuses.
