introduction
Introduction
  • This course is designed to cover Bayesian and statistical learning topics relevant to the fields of Machine learning, Data Mining, and Computer Vision. Prerequisites for the course include a knowledge of lower level algebra and pre-calculus. Students must complete a semester project dealing with one or more of the area’s listed below for credit. Projects can be concerned with the statistical techniques themselves or with relevant applications. I will suggest possible projects throughout the course. The course will cover statistical techniques with applications including the following:
topics discussed
Topics Discussed
  • 1. Clustering: the interface between k-means, EM based clustering, enhanced k-means clustering.
  • 2. Bayes Theorem: Occam’s Razor and the reason for avoiding classical statistics. The advantages of Bayes theorem.
  • 3. Markov Chain Monte Carlo in Computational Analysis.
  • 4. Boosting in statistics and machine learning
topics continued
Topics (continued)
  • 5. The role of ‘distance’ and ‘density’ in formulating statistical models. The special role of Kullback Leibler Divergence.
  • 6. Sequential Markov Chain Monte Carlo: Using Bayesian filters, particles to solve problems in inference.
  • 7. Robot Mapping and the alignment of maps
