MiniCollege Class at Skidmore
I'll be offering a MiniCollege class during Skidmore's Celebration Weekend 2017. It will be held on October 21 at 2pm in Bolton Hall room 280. My topic is Supervised Machine Learning using Decision Trees and Neural Networks. I'll provide some background on supervised machine learning and then explore, at a high level, two very different approaches to building supervised models. Finally, we'll use R (a platform for statistical computing) to build decision tree and neural network models, comparing their understandability and accuracy. If you are curious about data science and would like to take a peek into that domain please stop by. No prior knowledge of data mining is needed.
Here is a link to the presentation slides which will be used to frame the class discussion.
