Course description

Basic Course Description 

This course is for you if you want to have a real feel of the Machine Learning techniques without having to learn all the complicated maths. Additionally, this course is also for you if you have had previous hours and hours of machine learning theory but could never got a change or figure out how to implement and solve data science problems with it. 

The approach in this course is very practical and we will start everything from very scratch. We will immediately start coding after a couple of introductory tutorials and we try to keep the theory to bare minimal. All the coding will be done in MATLAB which is one of the fundamental programming languages for engineer and science students and is frequently used by top data science research groups world wide. 

Below is the brief outline of this course. 

  • Segment 1: Introduction to course
  • Segment 2: Data preprocessing 
  • Segment 3: Classification Algorithms in MATLAB
  • Segment 4: Clustering Algorithms in MATLAB
  • Segment 5: Dimensionality Reduction
  • Segment 6: Project: Malware Analysis
