Machine Learning: From Theory to Applications
Prof. Abdallah Shami, Western Ontario University, Canada
The objective of this tutorial is to introduce Machine Learning techniques based on a unified, probabilistic approach. Regression, classification, clustering, neural networks, mixture models, ensemble methods, and structure prediction will be covered in this tutorial. In addition, this tutorial will present a series of practical engineering case-studies (i.e., Network Security, eLearning Engagement, and others).
