Introduction to Machine Learning

Introduction to Machine Learning
According to jobs website LinkedIn, Artificial Intelligence (AI) specialist and Data Scientist are the top emerging jobs for 2020, and colleges are scrambling to add degree programs in these fields. What are AI, machine learning (ML), and data science? These are the ideas and algorithms that enable self-driving cars, and teach music apps like Pandora to predict what music you like. Data scientists program computers to find patterns that humans themselves cannot find.

The core techniques are based on statistics and computer programming. This class, taught by faculty and students from CU's Applied Mathematics and Computer Science departments (and part of CU's new Statistics and Data Science major), is a fast-paced introduction to statistics and ML algorithms, and involves hands-on analysis of real-world datasets, concluding with the development of a 20 Questions Game. Curriculum is geared toward advanced high school students, preferably with some prior experience programming.
