Being a mainly academic topic about 20 years ago, Machine Learning has become a discipline of major impact on both science and engineering by today. This course introduces the basics of Machine Learning and Data Mining. Major topics are concept learning, decision trees, problems of data in high dimensional representations, clustering algorithms, linear and nonlinear dimension reduction, basic artificial neural networks (e.g., multilayer perceptrons, RBF networks, self-organizing maps), classification methods, reinforcement learning, modeling uncertainty, and temporal probability models.
