This course covers feature selection fundamentals and applications. The students will first be reminded of the basics of machine learning algorithms and the problem of overfitting avoidance. In the wrapper setting, feature selection will be introduced as a special case of the model selection problem. Methods to derive principled feature selection algorithms will be reviewed as well as heuristic method, which work well in practice. One class will be devoted to feature construction techniques. Finally, a lecture will be devoted to the connections between feature section and causal discovery. The class will be accompanied by several lab sessions. The course will be attractive to students who like playing with data and want to learn practical data analysis techniques. The instructor has ten years of experience with consulting for startup companies in the US in pattern recognition and machine learning. Datasets from a variety of application domains will be made available: handwriting recognition, medical diagnosis, drug discovery, text classification, ecology, marketing.

Hello Sir,

I am unable to download lectures due to less internet speed at my end.
Also, electric fluctuations dont help me as the download begins from the start everytime there is an electric fluctuation.
Could you please provide me the link for download so that i can use DAP or REGT for download.. so that even if supply goes OFF, I can continue my download from where I left.
