Winter School on Machine Learning


Machine learning is an emerging field of computer science and engineering which is the foundation for most of the inter deisciplinary research being carried out these days. Smart cities, smart homes, smart campuses and other recent advances being made are changing this world toward 5th generation in which machine learning techniques play a vital role. Machine Learning is a course being made compulsory subject for all computer science and engineering graduates. This winter school is organized to impart strong foundations in machine learning concepts and to give implentation experiences through effective theory and laboratory sessions. Thereby the participants most likely young researchers and faculty members of various research/academic institutions can experience collaborative knowledge sharing and training on cutting edge technologies and tools which can make a teacher/researcher as pioneers of this interesting research area.


The different topics that can be covered for ML winter course is given (not limited to):
• Fundamentals of machine learning - Statistics
• Regression or linear models
• Learning algorithms
• Factor(Dimension) reduction methods
• Probabilistic inference methods (Markovian, Bayesian,etc)
• Advanced and Evolutionary optimization techniques
