CSI 772: Statistical Learning

James Gentle

``Statistical learning'' refers to analysis of data with the objective of identifying patterns or trends. We distinguish supervised learning, in which we seek to predict an outcome measure or class based on a sample of input measures, from unsupervised learning, in which we seek to identify and describe relationships and patterns among a sample of input measures. The course addresses the elements of both supervised learning and unsupervised learning. It covers essential material for developing new statistical learning algorithms.
