Overview

Discover and apply advanced statistical machine learning techniques

This online course explores advanced statistical machine learning.

You will discover where machine learning techniques are used in the data science project workflow. You will then look in detail at supervised learning statistical modeling algorithms for classification and regression problems, examining how these algorithms are related, and how models generated by them can be tuned and evaluated.

You will also look at feature engineering and how to analyse sufficiency of data.

This is an advanced course and some experience with machine learning, data science or statistical modeling is expected. Links will be provided to basic resources about assumed knowledge.

Sections of the course make use of advanced mathematics, including statistics, linear algebra, calculus and information theory. If you have prior knowledge of these areas, particularly the first two, you will obtain additional insights into the methods used. If you do not have this prior knowledge, you will still be able to achieve the learning outcomes of the course.

The course uses R. If you have not programmed with R before, you should consider taking a quick introductory course, such as Try R.
