Educational objectives
Knowlendge of the main problems of the field and the main algorithm to solve them.

Practical skills in doing Exploratory Data Analysis.

Practical skills in developing and debugging Machine Learning applications.

Knowledge of the main library for Machine Learning and Data Analysis.

In order to understand the content presented and achieve the learning objectives it is useful to have a good knowledge of Linear Algebra, Probability and basic Calulus. Basic programming skills in any programming language.
Teaching methods
The teaching is organized as follows:- frontal lectures in the classroom;- seminars- guided exercises at the Computer Science Laboratory on the design of convolutional neural networks with the Pytorch framework. During laboratory lectures, the students are distributed on 30 workstations. Teaching support tools: blackboard and PC+projector, PC.
Other information
I Semester (more details at link http: //www.ing.unipg.it/it/didattica/studiare-nei-nostri-corsi/orario-delle-lezioni ).
Learning verification modality
The verification of learning is performed with an oral exam and a practical test (project).
The oral test includes a discussion of the submitted project and two questions on topics chosen by the teacher, and lasts about 45 minutes.

The exam aims to verify the student's understanding of the fundamental theoretical tools provided by the teaching, as well as the relationship between these tools and the general topics of information engineering.

The project is used to verify the ability to use Machine Learning techniques for the analysis of data on real problems.

Reservations for examinations are made via the SOL portal: https://www.segreterie.unipg.it/.
