This subject introduces the essential elements of machine learning - a technique that enables a machine to learn from data and automatically derive or enhance its strategy to perform its tasks. Taking a practical and technical approach, the Machine Learning subject guides learners to the important principles that underlie highly successful machine learning techniques with hands-on experience.

This subject presents learners with core concepts in machine learning as well as a generic framework for machine learning projects. Different learning models, including Decision Trees, Random-Forest, and Neural Networks are discussed and practised with real-world applications dealing with structured (tabular), semi-structured (text) and unstructured data (image).
