Supervisor:
Department of Applied Mathematics
Synopsis:

The course focuses on algorithms used in the fields of machine learning and data mining. However, this is not an introductory course, and the students should know machine learning basics. The emphasis is put on advanced algorithms (e.g., gradient boosting) and non-basic kinds of machine learning tasks (e.g., recommendation systems) and models (e.g., kernel methods).

Requirements:

Statistics, algorithmization, BIE-VZD - Introduction to data mining.

Syllabus of lectures:

1. Recalling basic data mining methods and their applications.

2. Model evaluation.

3. Bias-variance decomposition, negative correlation learning.

4. Decision trees and ensemble methods based on them.

5.-6. (2) Boosting and gradient boosting (XGBoost).

7. Introduction to kernel methods.

8. Kernel methods.

9. Modern kernel methods.

10. - 11. (2) Introduction to recommendation systems, usage of kNN.

12. Matrix factorisation for reccomendation.

13. Hyperparameters tuning, AutoML, new trends.

Syllabus of tutorials:

(1-6) Various topics and in-depth examples of model evaluation techniques and selected algorithms.

Study Objective:

The course is suitable for those who want to familiarize themselves with the exceedingly interesting and useful discipline of data mining. The course covers the most useful algorithms that can be easily applied in any field of science.
