Applied Machine Learning
Dates: 27 Nov, 28 Nov 2023 | 9am – 5.30pm | Online
Duration: 2 Days
This course will introduce participants to machine learning, focusing more on the practical and applied aspects rather than theory. The course will discuss machine learning concepts, and briefly introduce Python, PyCharm environment, Scikit-learn, Numpy, Anaconda, and Keras toolkits.
Regression as a basic machine learning method will be discussed and practised. Different models and examples of regression will be reviewed. Support Vector Machines (SVM) along with their applications in function estimation and classification will also be introduced. We will also discuss artificial neural networks and introduce deep learning.
Participants will learn how to implement machine learning to solve real-life problems more productively and efficiently.
This course is part of Professional Certificate in Applied Machine Learning.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
• Understand the way regression, support vector machines (SVM), and artificial neural networks (ANN) work
• Recognise the applications, advantages and disadvantages of regression, SVM, and ANN methods
• Design and implement basic regression, SVM-based, and ANN-based algorithms in clustering, classification, and function estimation applications
