Data-driven decision-making is an essential component of emerging engineering systems that generate and consume very large amounts of sensing data from autonomous vehicles to digital pathology. This course covers technologies and methodologies necessary for inferring useful information and identifying underlying patterns from often raw, incomplete, noisy and corrupted data that is present in real-life engineering applications. It will also give students the opportunity to explore advanced solutions of data analytics such as sparse encoding, compressive sensing, nonlocal filtering, discriminative and generative modelling.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Describe a number of models for supervised, unsupervised inference from data
- Assess the strength and weakness of each of these models
- Interpret the mathematical equations from Linear Algebra, Statistics, and Probability Theory used in the learning models
- Implement efficient learning algorithms on a computer
- Design test procedures in order to evaluate a model
- Combine several models in order to gain better results
