Title: An Introduction to Data Analytics and Machine Learning
Date: June 15-17
Hours: 9 AM - 5 PM (CST)
Location: VIAS Houston Office,
1400 Broadfield Blvd. Suite 325, Houston, TX 77084

Course Objective: 

Data Analytics provides the technology to build data-driven predictive models and to search for interesting patterns in large amounts of data. At the core of data analytics lays the field of Machine Learning, which provides all the conceptual infrastructure and algorithms to build computer systems that learn from experience. Machine Learning is a subfield of Artificial Intelligence; it has received unprecedented attention lately due to its use in many real world applications.

The course will explain how to build systems that learn and adapt borrowing from examples in industry and science, e.g.

  • learning to predict medical diagnoses,
  • anticipating machine failures,
  • minimizing the cost of expensive simulations

The class will be self-contained (no previous knowledge will be assumed). Main topics include:
  • linear discriminants
  • neural networks
  • deep learning
  • feature selection
  • decision trees
  • support vector machines
  • unsupervised learning

Target Audience: This course is recommended for everyone interested in data analytics and machine learning.
