Learning outcomes

The objective is to introduce students to statistical modelling and exploratory data analysis. The mathematical foundations of Statistical Learning (supervised and unsupervised learning, deep learning) are developed with emphasis on the underlying abstract mathematical framework, aiming to provide a rigorous, self-contained derivation and theoretical analysis of the main models currently used in applications. Complimentary laboratory sessions will illustrate the use of both the key algorithms and relevant case studies, mainly by using standard software environments such as R or Python.
