Machine learning is, in many ways, already revolutionising the broad ICT sector. In ‘Machine Learning’ you will explore the impact machine learning is having on the major statistical learning models and algorithms used in data analysis. You will build your understanding of these modelling algorithms – contextualised according to the emergence and evolution of machine learning – based upon foundational concepts, including: linear models for regression and classification (logistic regression, Bayesian classifiers), discriminative and generative models, k-means and latent variable models (Gaussian mixture model), expectation-maximisation, neural networks and deep learning.
