Machine Learning

The course addresses the question of how to enable computers to learn from previous experiences. 

First, the machine learning field is introduced, describing a variety of learning paradigms, algorithms, theoretical results and applications. Then basic concepts from statistics, information theory and probability theory are introduced to the degree they are relevant to machine learning. 

The course deals with advanced models such as deep learning and focuses on both theory and applications of these models. The course covers ethical aspects of machine learning models, model prejudices at different levels and how they can be handled in an effective way.
