Learning From Data

Learning From Data is a course that I am very excited about. It is an entry-level course in what many would call Machine Learning. I developed this course while teaching in Korea from 20111-2014, and brought this course to GMU where I have been teaching it for four years. As with any course, it has evolved over the years. In an attempt to get students engaged in working with real data on real problems, the exercises using Scikit-Learn along with some projects have been increased., while making sure the student still understands what is going on "under the hood."

In the fall of 2021, this course was offered asynchronously online for the first time. To make it more engaging, 87 lecture modules organized into 14 clusters were developed. Each module considers a specific concept and typically lasts for 10-30 minutes, and more modules are being added every month.
