Mathematical Foundations of Machine Learning

Module code: MA2041

In this module, you will learn how to formulate and state basic tasks and problems of Machine Learning. We will examine how basic Learning Machines (such as Support Vector Machines, linear classifiers and regressions, and binary decision trees) are constructed and evaluated. You will also learn how to formulate convergence criteria for basic learning algorithms and demonstrate their validity using formal reasoning.
