CMPT 419/ 726 Special Topics in Artificial Intelligence
Special Topics in Artificial Intelligence: Machine Learning. Machine Learning is the study of computer algorithms that improve automatically through experience. It is one of the most exciting aspects of artificial intelligence, and is the basis for many of its industrial applications. It is the preferred framework for many applications, such as face detection, hand-written digit recognition, speech recognition, and credit card fraud detection. This course provides students with a grounding in both the theoretical justification for, and practical application of, machine learning algorithms. Covers techniques in supervised and unsupervised learning, the graphical model formalism, and algorithms for combining models.
