The course is designed for graduate students (i.e. first year ME or research students). The course is intended to give the students a fairly comprehensive view of fundamentals of classification and regression. However, not all topics are covered.
For example, we do not discuss Decision tree classifiers. Also, the course deals with neural networks models only from the point of view of classification and regression. For example, no recurrent neural network models (e.g., Boltzman machine) are included. The main reason for leaving out some topics is to keep the course content suitable for a one semester course.
