The main objectives of the course “Adaptive Algorithms and
Machine Learning” (AAML) is to introduce students to state-of-the-art
methods and basic programming tools for analysis of complex and big-data set.
The AAML course provides theoretical and practical basic-tools for the study
and determination of adaptive and machine learning algorithms: linear,
nonlinear, supervised, unsupervised for static (or memoryless)
applications: regression, classification and clustering; and dynamic
application: adaptive filtering, modeling and
prediction of complex physical phenomena. In particular, are provided: the
theoretical and practical basic-tools for linear adaptive filtering in
different application; the formal statistical methods for performance
analysis of ML algorithms and the basic tools for the algorithm development
on vector and parallel architectures and large-scale distributed environment.
A secondary objective of the AAML course is to teach students how to
develop, and evaluate, simple ML or adaptive filtering algorithms in various
application domains such as: multimedia and multimodal communications,
biological, biomedical, sound, telecommunications, remote sensing, social
networks, internet, big-data, industry 4.0, etc. Therefore, every
student will lead a project that is based on machine learning
Objectives of the Course
student acquires the basic theory and is able to design, implement and
evaluate the performance of, most common machine learning algorithms, also on
parallel machines with different grain on several application contexts.
