For Practical
Course Objectives The course goal is to make students familiar with basic principles of various
computational methods of data processing that can commonly be called
computational intelligence (CI). Students shall be introduced to introductory
machine learning methods of supervised and unsupervised learnings,
classification and regression and decision trees. CI methods such as Neural
Network and Evolutionary algorithms including Genetic algorithms and Particles
Swarm Algorithms shall be introduced. Course would end with discussion of
Reinforcement Learning. Along with theoretical concepts, the practical
application shall be focus of this course.
Course Outcomes  After the course the students will be able to conceptually understand the
important terms and algorithms of introductory Machine Learning and
Computational Intelligence
 Students would be able to choose appropriate method(s) for a given task.
 Be able to implement the theoretical introduction by practical examples of
task solving.
