School Of Computer Science And Electronic Engineering
Module - Semester 1
Indicative content includes:
- Overview of the structure of the field.
- Basic principles of machine learning and data analytics.
- Standard and advanced classifiers.
- Clustering and feature selection.
- Elements of data analytics. Descriptive statistics.
- Deep Learning neural networks
-threshold -Equivalent to 50%.Uses key areas of theory or knowledge to meet the Learning Outcomes of the module. Is able to formulate an appropriate solution to accurately solve tasks and questions. Can identify individual aspects, but lacks an awareness of links between them and the wider contexts. Outputs can be understood, but lack structure and/or coherence. -good -Equivalent to the range 60%-69%.Is able to analyse a task or problem to decide which aspects of theory and knowledge to apply. Solutions are of a workable quality, demonstrating understanding of underlying principles. Major themes can be linked appropriately but may not be able to extend this to individual aspects. Outputs are readily understood, with an appropriate structure but may lack sophistication. -excellent -Equivalent to the range 70%+.Assemble critically evaluated, relevant areas of knowledge and theory to construct professional-level solutions to tasks and questions presented. Is able to cross-link themes and aspects to draw considered conclusions. Presents outputs in a cohesive, accurate, and efficient manner.
- Apply clustering and feature selection to real-life problems.
- Perform elementary data analysis (descriptive statistics, visualisation, simple regression).
- Understand and apply classification methods to synthetic and real datasets.
- Understand deep learning neural networks and their applications.
- Understand the fundamentals of machine learning and data analytics.
A collection of small problems based on the first half of the module. Hand-crafted solutions and short Python code solutions are expected.
