CSE40: Machine Learning Basics: Data Analysis and Empirical Methods


This course provides an introduction to the basic mathematical concepts and programming abstractions required for modern machine learning, data science and empirical science.   The mathematical foundations include basic probability, linear algebra and optimization.   The programming abstractions include data manipulation and visualization.  The principles of empirical analysis, evaluation, critique and reproducibility will be emphasized.   Mathematical and programming abstractions will be grounded in empirical studies including data-driven evidential reasoning, predictive modeling and causal analysis. Prerequisite(s): MATH 19B or MATH 20B, and CSE 30
