Foundations of Machine Learning Algorithms: Pen-Paper Calculations

"Foundations of Machine Learning (Algorithms): Pen-paper calculations " course is a non-coding course, which is a MUST for ALL persons desirous of learning Machine Learning from mathematical and algorithmic point of view. We will focus more on the theoretical aspects of the algorithms, parameters and hand-calculations will be done on dummy data step-by-step. In some cases, to automate the calclations, we will be using MS Excel.

Course Highlights:
  • Clear algorithm explainations that help you to understand the principles that underlie each technique.
  • The step-by-step algorithm workout on black-board to show you exactly how each model learns.
  •  Real worked examples so that you can see exactly the numbers in and the numbers out, there’s nowhere for the details to hide. 
Course Contents:

The Following algorithms are tentatively planned to be discussed and detailed tutorials/examples will be worked out in the class.
