Machine Learning

During the past decade Machine Learning, which is the science of getting computers to act without being explicitly programmed, has experienced huge progresses in the development of methods, models and practices. Machine Learning, which has given us practical speech recognition, effective web search, Netflix and Amazon recommendations, … is so pervasive today that certainly everyone is using it many times without knowing it. In this course you will learn about the main used Machine Learning techniques with an emphasis on Kaggle competitions. Topics include : gradient descent, logistic regression model, neural networks, decision trees and unsupervised learning (clustering, feature engineering).
