This course introduces both the theoretical foundation of machine learning algorithms as well as their practical applications of machine learning techniques in R. An understanding of underlying algorithms is important to understand the mechanism of programming machine learning techniques. It helps data scientists to detect problems and improve performance. After successful completion of this course, students will be able to break down the mathematics behind major machine learning algorithms and explain the principles of machine learning algorithms. This course will introduce students to data mining, performance measures and dimension reduction, regression models, both linear and generalized, KNN and Naïve Bayes models, tree models, and SVMs as well as the Association Rule for analysis and neural networks. To pass this unit students are required to complete their homework.
Students will be able to break down the mathematics behind major machine learning algorithms, explain the principles of machine learning algorithms, and implement these methods to solve real-world problems.
David Romoff is a risk management consultant with 10 years of experience modeling market and credit risk using the latest methods and technologies. David's recent work includes serving as Manager of Risk Management at On Deck Capital, a business lending company in the FinTech space that uses machine learning models to underwrite loans. Previously, David worked in Enterprise Risk Management at AIG for five years were he designed and supported models on insurance risk, credit risk, and capital allocation. Before AIG, he worked at Bear Stearns in counterparty credit risk. David has an MBA from the Zicklin School of Business in New York City and a Master of Science in Actuarial Science from Columbia University.
