###### COURSE OVERVIEW

Getting to know the Mathematics and Statistics behind the ML algorithms. Appreciation of these concepts helps in 1. Understanding how the algorithms learn from data 2. Explaining how the results have been obtained 3. Selecting appropriate evaluation parameters Discussion of these topics are done in the context of solving business problems with Machine Learning algorithms and theoretical depth is determined by these considerations. While the Foundation module is adequate for practitioners, researchers in Machine Learning need to take higher level courses as well.

 Linear Algebra How AIML problems are   formulated using the   concepts of Scalar, Vector,   Matrices and Tensors Understanding how Matrix   multiplication, identity,   inverse and other related   concepts such as norm,   span, dependence and   determinant accelerate   AIML algorithms Probability Probabilistic nature of   machine learning -   understanding how theory   of probability forms the   basis of predictive analysis Applying probability   distributions, marginal and   conditional probability,   Bayes' rule to solving   simple problems and how it   is scaled up to machine   learning algorithms,   Hypothesis testing Calculus and     Optimisation Finding minima and   maxima with calculus - how   simple principles of calculus   when combined with vast   computing power can   provide solution to complex   problems Stochastic Gradient Descent   Optimisation, Constrained   Optimisation and Linear   Least Square Statistics for     Machine Learning Measure of Central tendency - Mean, Median, Mode Dispersion Measures,   Range,  Variance,     Covariance, Standard   Deviation, Z-score,   Kurtosis,  Skewness Correlation and covariance,   VIF Normal distribution and   other types of distribution,   z- score and cumulative   distribution function RMSE, MAE, R-squared
