Topics in Machine Learning National Taiwan University
Optimization techniques are used in all kinds of machine learning problems because in general we would like to minimize the testing error. This course will contain two parts. The first part focuses on convex optimization techniques. We discuss methods for least-squares, linear and quadratic programs, semidefinite programming, and others. We also touch theory behind these methods (e.g., optimality conditions and duality theory). In the second part of this course we will investigate how optimization techniques are applied to various machine learning problems (e.g., SVM, maximum entropy, conditional random fields, sparse reconstruction for signal processing applications). We further discuss that for different machine learning applications how to choose right optimization methods.
learn how to use optimization techniques for solving machine learning problems.
