BE4M33SSU - Statistical Machine Learning

Overview

The aim of statistical machine learning is to develop systems (models and algorithms) able to learn to solve prediction tasks given a set of examples and some prior knowledge about the task. Students will gain the ability to construct learning systems for typical applications by successfully combining appropriate models and learning methods.
