Theoretical Machine Learning

Robert E. Schapire

Introduction to theoretical machine learning, including mathematical models of machine learning, and the design and rigorous analysis of learning algorithms. Likely topics include: bounds on the number of random examples needed to learn; learning from non-random examples in the on-line learning model; how to boost the accuracy of a weak learning algorithm; support-vector machines; maximum-entropy modeling; portfolio selection; game theory. Regular problem sets and final project. Attendance expected at all lectures.

Other Requirements:
Not Open to First Years.
