Learning Outcomes
The objectives of the course include (a) the acquisition of specialized knowledge to address issues that arise in real-world applications (class imbalance, unequal classification error costs, limited training data, large data sets, data streams, data with multiple labels, instances and relations), (b) the acquisition of useful skills for researchers and practitioners (reading, writing and evaluating scientific publications, performing comparative analysis of machine learning algorithms, using data analysis software, implementing learning algorithms), and (c) acquaintance with modern popular applications (opinion mining, data mining for the retail business). The ultimate goal is to prepare students for both a professional career and the continuation of their studies at the third cycle.
General Competences
