Machine learning is the science of data analysis that enables computers to learn without being explicitly programmed. From the computer science point of view, unlike computational statistics dealing with prediction-making or data mining focusing on data-exploring, machine learning uses data to iteratively detect patterns and adjust models accordingly. This introductory course provides students an overview of the field of machine learning, as well as of its fundamental concepts and algorithms from practical perspective. Usually, machine learning algorithms are categorized as being supervised or unsupervised. Some of the important topics include (1) Supervised learning (Linear and Logistic Regressions, Classification and Regression Trees, Support Vector Machines, and Neural Networks). (2) Unsupervised learning (Association Rules and Cluster Analysis). (3) Others (Boosting and Random Forests).
