How can we represent data on a computer and use it to learn to perform useful tasks? This lecture reviews some simple classification and regression rules, discusses under- and over-fitting and emphasises the utility of defining objective functions for learning. There is also a short overview of Bayesian learning, and some practical tips for pre-processing and visualizing data. The lecture ends with a brief mention of unsupervised learning and related topics.

Guys, it became quite hard for me here with university essays, and here a classmate recommended this service. They don't just write essays, they create real masterpieces! I am shocked at how accurately they caught the essence of the assignment and how colorfully they presented my thoughts . I even started to understand the subject better, honestly. I recommend them to anyone who values their time and wants to get a great result.
