Machine learning (ML) is clearly the coolest kid on the block right now, and everyone wants to be friends with ML! However, ML as a field has so many areas and sub-areas, and so much jargon that it is hard for a beginner (or even a grad student in ML) to place all of the problems and techniques in context.
This 4-part class will provide brief overviews of diverse ML areas and discussions comparing and contrasting techniques. Each session will consist of MIT grad students giving 1/2 hr talks on particular topics and a discussion putting those topics in context.
Tentative topics per session are:
- Overview of supervised and unsupervised learning
- Bayesian Methods
- Neural Nets
Class is geared towards advanced undergraduate and graduate students. It assumes a basic familiarity with ML.
