Course Overview:
Python is one of the most widely used and highly valued programming languages in the world, and is especially widely used in machine learning and for deep learning. In this two day course, we provide an introduction to machine learning and deep learning using Python. We begin by providing an overview of the machine learning and deep learning landscape, and discuss the prominent role that Python has come to play in this area. We then turn to machine learning in practice, and for this, we will primarily using the widely used and acclaimed scikit-learn toolbox. We begin with binary and multiclass classification problems, then look at decision trees and random forests, then look at unsupervised learning methods, all of which are major topics in machine learning. We then cover artificial neural networks and deep learning. For this, we will using the PyTorch deep learning toolbox. Here, we will cover the relatively easy to understand multilayer perceptron and then turn to convolutional neural networks.
