Module title:Machine Learning
Module codeECMM422
Module lecturers:Dr Fabrizio Costa
Module credits:15

Machine learning has emerged mainly from computer science and artificial intelligence, and draws on methods from a variety of related subjects including statistics, applied mathematics and more specialized fields, such as pattern recognition and neural computation. Applications are, for example, image and speech analysis, medical imaging, bioinformatics and exploratory data analysis in natural science and engineering. This module will provide you with a thorough grounding in the theory and application of machine learning, pattern recognition, classification, categorisation, and concept acquisition.  Hence, it is particularly suitable for Computer Science, Mathematics and Engineering students and any students with some experience in probability and programming.
