Proseminar: Machine Learning Methods for Audio and Video Analysis|
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
|Course Cluster and Certificates: Applied Data Science Certificate|
In this course, students are introduced to machine learning techniques to analyze image, audio, and video data. The course is organized in three parts, and in each part we will first introduce how these nontraditional data can be converted into appropriate (mathematical) objects suitable for computer processing, and, particularly, for the application of machine learning techniques. Students then will learn and work with a number of machine learning algorithms and deep learning methods that are effective for image and audio analysis. We will also explore major applications of these techniques such as object detection, face recognition, image classification, audio classification, speaker detection, and speech recognition.

Various journal articles
|Examinations and Assignments: |
Course requirements include several assignments, a term project and presentation
|Additional Requirements and/or Comments: |
The course requires a basic programming background that is why COMP 112, QAC155, QAC156 etc. are formal prerequisites. Pre-req overrides will be approved for students who satisfy this basic requirement through other course work. The course includes a strong lab component and programming in R and Python is a significant part of the course work. Professor Kaparakis will be handling pre-requisite override requests during pre-registration, but is not the instructor for this course.
PLEASE NOTE: Only graded courses can satisfy the requirements for the data analysis minor and the applied data science certificate. Courses completed with a CR/U grading mode will not satisfy the requirements of the two programs.
