This is the course webpage for the Autumn 2019 version of TTIC 31020: Introduction to Machine Learning.

Note: registration is by consent only. Since we expect to have more interest than spots in the course, an entrance exam will be administered to all students on the first day of class (Tuesday, October 1). The exam will last 40 minutes and will test for basic knowledge of linear algebra, probability, and calculus. After grading the exam, we will grant permission for students to enroll in the course.
