This course will provide a conceptual overview and practical hands-on experience of a wide range of key tools, techniques and processes used in deep learning and AI.
At the heart of the data mining toolkit is the suite of predictive modelling methods. Accordingly, the course will develop attendees’ literacy in the strengths, characteristics and correct application of a range of predictive modelling methods, from relatively simple linear models through to complex and powerful Random Forests, Support Vector Machines, Decision Trees, Tree Boosting Machines and Neural Networks will be covered along the way. It will also teach the correct framing of predictive modelling problems, suitably preparing data, evaluating model accuracy and stability, interpreting results and interrogating models.
The two key styles of predictive modelling – operational for targeting and explanatory for insights – will be described and distinguished. As well as predictive modelling, the course will cover a range of other key data mining tools, including:
- Data exploration and visualisation: univariate summaries, correlation matrices, heat maps, hierarchical clustering.
- Cluster analysis – used for customer segmentation and anomaly detection
- Other “unsupervised” outlier detection tools.
This deep learning and AI course will primarily be taught using Rattle, a graphical interface for predictive modelling and data science in R. Participants will be exposed to “Big Data” techniques as applied to machine learning and deployed on cloud computing platforms. The following additional topics may be covered depending on the pace and interests of the class:
- Link and network analysis visualisation – which provide a simple and compelling way to communicate and analyse relationships, and are commonly applied in forensics, human resources and law enforcement.
- Association analysis – used in retail market basket analysis and the assessment of risk groupings.
- Frequent item set analysis.
