Learning outcomes

: This course offers a grounding in machine learning concepts as well as practical advice on applying machine learning tools and techniques in real-world data mining situations. You will learn how to prepare inputs, interpret outputs, evaluate results, and the algorithmic methods at the heart of successful data mining, including both tried-and-true techniques of the past and methods at the leading edge of contemporary research.


We first discuss what kind of input a data mining application assumes and what kind of different outputs it may produce. After this, we represent some basic data mining methods and show how the credibility of their results can be evaluated statistically. Basic algorithms are then extended to state-of-the-art real data mining methods. Finally, we discuss the engineering of the input and output.
