 Synopsis:

Students are introduced to the basic methods of discovering knowledge in data. In particular, they learn the basic techniques of data preprocessing, multidimensional data visualization, statistical techniques of data transformation, and fundamental principles of knowledge discovery methods. Students will be aware of the relationships between model bias and variance, and know the fundamentals of assessing model quality. Data mining software is extensively used in the module. Students will be able to apply basic data mining tools to common problems (classification, regression, clustering).
 Requirements:

The knowledge of calculus, linear algebra and probability theory is assumed.
 Syllabus of lectures:

1. Introduction to the field and applications
2. Decision trees, test, train, validation set
3. Ensemble methods (random forest, AdaBoost)
4. Hierarchical clustering, kmeans algorithm
5. kNN (knearest neighbours)
6. Naive Bayes
7. Linear regression
8. Logistic regression
9. Ridge regression and regularisation
10. Dimensionality reduction
11. Neural networks
12. Natural language processing
 Syllabus of tutorials:

1. Jupyter notebooks and machine learning packages
2. Decision trees, hyperparameters tuning
