Welcome to CMSC742, Algorithms in Machine Learning: Guarantees and Analyses (Fall'21)!


Machine learning studies automatic methods for learning to make accurate predictions, to understand patterns in observed features and to make useful decisions based on past observations.

This course introduces theoretical machine learning, including mathematical models of machine learning, and the design and rigorous analysis of learning algorithms.

Here is a tentative list of topics. (Bullets do not correspond precisely to lectures.)
