This course provides an introduction to statistical learning and aims to develop skills in modern statistical data analysis. There has been a prevalence of “big data” in many different scientific fields.  In order to tackle the analysis of data of such size and complexity, traditional statistical methods have been reconsidered and new methods have been developed for extracting information, or "learning", from such data.  This course will cover a range of topics in statistical learning including linear regression, classification techniques, resampling methods (e.g., the bootstrap), regularisation methods, tree based methods, and unsupervised learning techniques (e.g., clustering). As the extensive use of statistical software is integral to modern data analysis, there will be a strong computing component in this course.

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.
