ECE 805 - Machine Learning

Instructor: Professor Marios Polycarpou, University of Cyprus

This course aims to introduce the theory, methods and applications of the field of Machine Learning. The objectives of the course are the presentation of the core principles and algorithms of supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning, the explanation of the application of these algorithms for the solution of regression, classification, clustering and decision-making problems and the demonstration of practical machine learning tools suitable for the analysis of data sets and the solution of machine learning problems. Special emphasis will be placed on real-world critical infrastructure systems applications.
By the end of the course, students should be able to understand the principles of supervised, unsupervised and reinforcement learning, to design and implement a wide variety of machine learning algorithms, to analyze raw data to create representations that are more suitable for machine learning algorithms and to solve and evaluate the performance of classification, regression, dimensionality reduction and clustering problems that arise in critical infrastructure systems using state-of-the-art machine learning tools.
