− | the final score will be the sum of HW (not compulsory) and | + | the final score will be the sum of HW (not compulsory) and OR scores. You will get the oral grade as a mark in the scale of 30 up to 32/30 which you have to multiply by 0.8125 and then you add to it the score of the project. For your convenience here it is [[Media:ML2021-Conversion.pdf|a conversion table]] with the final mark in case you do not turn in the project or you get the whole 6 marks in the project. |

+ | |||

+ | ====Homework #1 2021/2022==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | The first project asks you to develop a regression model on the [[Media:ML-2122-HW1.zip | Forest Fires Data Set]]. The goal of the model is to predict, given a set of features the burned area of forest fires. The project should focus on investigating the part of features selection for the regression task to understand the relationships between the different variables involved fully. | ||

+ | An accurate and helpful description of the dataset is included in the forestfire.names file. | ||

+ | |||

+ | The project should consist of an executable python notebook, sufficiently commented. Most of the cells should be adequately followed or preceded by an explanation of what you are doing, why, what the output is, how you interpret it, and so on. | ||

+ | |||

+ | You can submit your notebook via email at stefano.samele@polimi.it. The deadline is 11/05/22 at midday CET. | ||

+ | The notebook should already display all the cells' outputs. A copy and a re-execution will be performed to evaluate your work: we need to be sure your code is actually executable and displays consistent results. | ||

+ | |||

+ | You can attend the project in a group of maximum two. Scores (0-1-2, with half points) will be assigned based on the ability to organize the investigation and the code, adopt relevant methodologies presented during laboratories, understand and interpret results, and comply with project requests. | ||

+ | |||

+ | ====Homework #2 2021/2022==== | ||

+ | |||

+ | The second project asks you to develop a classification model for the <s>Autism Screening Adult Data Set</s> [[Media:ML-2122-HW2.2.zip | Breast Cancer Wisconsin Dataset]]. The task consists in predicting whether the patient is affected by an Autistic Spectrum Disorder, based on a set of specific features. The goal of the project is to build, given the set of models explained during the laboratories, the best fit for the task. | ||

+ | |||

+ | You can submit your notebook via email at stefano.samele@polimi.it. The deadline is <s>01/06/22</s> 03/06/22 at midday CET. | ||

+ | Please rename your file as name_surname_stuedentidnumber. | ||

+ | |||

+ | For any other information please refer to the previous project announcement. | ||

+ | We will use Python (with Jupyter notebooks) throughout the course, thus we kindly ask you to install the "Anaconda" package to be ready for the labs. Here are the [https://www.anaconda.com/products/individual download links]. You can find a simple Jupyter notebook [[Media:ML2021-test.zip | HERE]] to test if the installation succeeded. | ||

+ | |||

+ | To open the notebook | ||

+ | * launch the "Anaconda Navigator" app | ||

+ | * launch the "jupyter Notebook" app within the navigator, it should automatically open a webpage (it may take a while) | ||

+ | * on the webpage, navigate on the folder where you downloaded the "lab01.00-TestEnvironment.ipynb" file, and press on the file to open it | ||

+ | * then follow the instruction within the notebook | ||

+ | |||

+ | If you didn't install anaconda but just jupyter, or if you can't find Anaconda Navigator | ||

+ | * open a shell ("Anaconda Prompt" if you are using Windows) | ||

* 21/05/2022: The dataset for the second homework is changed!!! * 19/05/2022: The second homework is out!!! * 04/05/2022: Changed lecture schedule * 02/05/2022: Changed deadline first homework -> 11/05/2022 at noon * 22/04/2022: The first homework is out!!! * 08/03/2022: Added material for the first lab * 06/03/2022: Slides from first lectures and last year's recordings updated * 23/02/2022: Lectures start today!

## Course Aim & Organization

The objective of the Machine Learning course is to give an in-depth presentation of the techniques most used for pattern recognition, knowledge discovery, and data analysis/modeling. These techniques are presented both from a theoretical (i.e., statistics and information theory) perspective and a practical one (i.e., coding examples) through the descriptions of algorithms and their implementations in a general-purpose programming language (i.e., python).

The course presents the classical supervised and unsupervised learning paradigms described and discussed presenting regression, classification, and clustering problems in Bioinformatics. The course is composed of a set of lectures on specific machine learning techniques (e.g., generalized linear regression, logistic regression, linear and quadratic discriminant analysis, support vector machines, k-nearest-neighborhood, clustering, etc.) preceded by the introduction of the Statistical Learning framework which acts as a common reference framework for the entire course.

### Teachers

The course is composed of a blending of lectures and exercises by the course teacher and a teaching assistant.

- Matteo Matteucci: the course teacher
- Stefano Samele: the teaching assistant

### Course Program

The course mostly follows the following book which is also available for download in pdf

- An Introduction to Statistical Learning with Applications in R by Gareth James, Daniela Witten, Trevor Hastie, and Robert Tibshirani

The course lectures will present the theory and practice of the following:

- Machine Learning and Pattern Classification: the general concepts of Machine Learning and Pattern Recognition are introduced within the framework of Statistical Decision Theory with reference to the bias-variance trade-off and the Bayes classifier;
- Generalized Linear Regression: linear methods for regression will be presented and discussed introducing different techniques (e.g., Linear Regression, Ridge Regression, K-Nearest Neighbors Regression, Non-Linear Regression, etc.) and the most common methodologies for model validation and selection (e.g., AIC, BIC, cross-validation, stepwise feature selection, Lasso, etc.).
- Linear and Non-Linear Classification: generative and discriminative techniques for classification will be described and discussed (e.g., Logistic Regression, Linear and Quadratic Discriminant Analysis, K-Nearest Neighbors, Perceptron Rule, and Support Vector Machines, etc.). Metrics for classifiers evaluation and comparison are presented in this part of the course (e.g., accuracy, precision, recall, ROC, AUC, F-measure, Matthew coefficient).
- Unsupervised Learning: the most common approaches to unsupervised learning are described mostly focusing on clustering methods such as hierarchical clustering, k-means, k-medoids, Mixture of Gaussians, DBSCAN, etc

These topics will be presented both from a theoretical perspective and a practical one via implementations in the general-purpose programming language python.

### Course Evaluation

The course evaluation is composed by two parts:

- HW: Homework with exercises covering the whole program (up to 6 points)
- OR: An oral discussion covering the whole program (up to 26 points)

the final score will be the sum of HW (not compulsory) and OR scores. You will get the oral grade as a mark in the scale of 30 up to 32/30 which you have to multiply by 0.8125 and then you add to it the score of the project. For your convenience here it is a conversion table with the final mark in case you do not turn in the project or you get the whole 6 marks in the project.

#### Homework #1 2021/2022

The first project asks you to develop a regression model on the Forest Fires Data Set. The goal of the model is to predict, given a set of features the burned area of forest fires. The project should focus on investigating the part of features selection for the regression task to understand the relationships between the different variables involved fully. An accurate and helpful description of the dataset is included in the forestfire.names file.

The project should consist of an executable python notebook, sufficiently commented. Most of the cells should be adequately followed or preceded by an explanation of what you are doing, why, what the output is, how you interpret it, and so on.

You can submit your notebook via email at stefano.samele@polimi.it. The deadline is 11/05/22 at midday CET. The notebook should already display all the cells' outputs. A copy and a re-execution will be performed to evaluate your work: we need to be sure your code is actually executable and displays consistent results.

You can attend the project in a group of maximum two. Scores (0-1-2, with half points) will be assigned based on the ability to organize the investigation and the code, adopt relevant methodologies presented during laboratories, understand and interpret results, and comply with project requests.

#### Homework #2 2021/2022

The second project asks you to develop a classification model for the ~~Autism Screening Adult Data Set~~ Breast Cancer Wisconsin Dataset. The task consists in predicting whether the patient is affected by an Autistic Spectrum Disorder, based on a set of specific features. The goal of the project is to build, given the set of models explained during the laboratories, the best fit for the task.

You can submit your notebook via email at stefano.samele@polimi.it. The deadline is ~~01/06/22~~ 03/06/22 at midday CET.
Please rename your file as name_surname_stuedentidnumber.

For any other information please refer to the previous project announcement.

### Laboratories

We will use Python (with Jupyter notebooks) throughout the course, thus we kindly ask you to install the "Anaconda" package to be ready for the labs. Here are the download links. You can find a simple Jupyter notebook HERE to test if the installation succeeded.

To open the notebook

- launch the "Anaconda Navigator" app
- launch the "jupyter Notebook" app within the navigator, it should automatically open a webpage (it may take a while)
- on the webpage, navigate on the folder where you downloaded the "lab01.00-TestEnvironment.ipynb" file, and press on the file to open it
- then follow the instruction within the notebook

If you didn't install anaconda but just jupyter, or if you can't find Anaconda Navigator

- open a shell ("Anaconda Prompt" if you are using Windows)
- move on to the folder where you downloaded "lab01.00-TestEnvironment.ipynb"
- run the "jupyter notebook" command, it should automatically open a webpage
- then on the webpage press on the "lab01.00-TestEnvironment.ipynb" file and follow the instructions within the notebook
