Description:

Statistical learning is a field that teaches students how to analyze and interpret data by applying statistical methods and machine learning algorithms to uncover patterns, make predictions, and gain insights from data.

The course is designed for master's or PhD. students. Due to the significant programming component, prior knowledge in R or other programming languages is desirable but not required.

Outline:

The syllabus includes: statistical and machine learning methods, in particular: linear and polynomial regression, logistic regression and linear discriminant analysis; cross-validation and the bootstrap, model selection and regularization methods (ridge and lasso); nonlinear models, splines and generalized additive models; tree-based methods, random forests and boosting; support-vector machines. Some unsupervised learning methods are discussed: principal components and clustering (k-means and hierarchical).

Methods of Assessment:

Report and Presentation.
