Machine Learning has found its way into many of the services we use daily, e.g., Google Search, YouTube, Netflix, and Spotify. It is a subfield of artificial intelligence (AI) that deals with the challenge of computers performing tasks without being explicitly programmed. This course will introduce the student to the basic principles and concepts of machine learning. Apart from the intuitions, the student will get familiar with the most popular machine learning algorithms, their applications, and their intuitions. By the end of this course, the student will be prepared to enter the fantastic world of machine learning towards amazing job positions in the industry.
