    Basic Course Description 

    This course is for you if you want to have a real feel of the Machine Learning techniques without having to learn all the complicated maths. Additionally, this course is also for you if you have had previous hours and hours of machine learning theory but could never got a change or figure out how to implement and solve data science problems with it.

    The approach in this course is very practical and we will start everything from very scratch. We will immediately start coding after a couple of introductory tutorials and we try to keep the theory to bare minimal. All the coding will be done in MATLAB which is one of the fundamental programming languages for engineer and science students and is frequently used by top data science research groups world wide.

    Below is the brief outline of this course.

    1: Introduction to course

    In this section we spend some time talking about the topics you’ll learn, the approach of learning used in the course, essential details about MATLAB to get you started. This will give you an idea of what to expect from the course.

    2: Data preprocessing (Brief videos)

    We need to prepare and preprocess our data before applying Data Science algorithms and techniques. This section discusses the essential preprocessing techniques and discuses the topics such as getting rid of outliers, dealing with missing values, converting categorical data to numerical form, and feature scalling.

    3: Classification Algorithms in MATLAB

    Classification algorithms is an important class of Data Science algorithms and is a must learn for every data scientist. This section provides not only the intuition behind some of the most commonly used classification algorithm but also provides there implementation in MATLAB. The algorithms that we cover are

    a). K-Nearest Neighbor

    b). Naïve Bayesain

    c). Support Vector Machine

    d). Decision Trees

    e). Discriminant Analysis

    In addition to these we also cover how to evaluate the performance of classifiers using different metrics.

    4: Clustering Algorithms in MATLAB

    This section introduces some of the commonly used clustering algorithms alongside with their intuition and implementation in MATLAB. We also cover the limitations of clustering algorithms by looking at their performance when the clusters are of different sizes, shapes and densities. The algorithms we cover in this section are

    a). K-Means

    b). Mean Shift

    c). DBSCAN

    d). Hierarchical Clustering

    In the same section, we also cover practical application of the clustering algorithms by looking at the applications of image compression and sentence grouping. This section provides some intuition regarding the strengths of clustering in real life data analysis tasks.

    5: Dimensionality Reduction

    Dimensionality reduction is an important branch of algorithms in Data Science. In this section we show how to reduce the dimensions for a specific Data Science problems so that the visualization becomes easy. We cover the PCA algorithm in this section.

    6: Project: Malware Analysis

    In this section we provide a detailed project on malware analysis from one of our recent research paper. We provide introductory videos on how to complete the project. This will provide you with some hands on experience for analyzing Data Science problems.
