Proseminar: Machine Learning Methods for Text, Audio and Video Analysis|
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
|Certificates: Applied Data Science|
In this course, students will learn machine learning techniques to analyze text, audio, and video data. The course consists of three parts: text analysis, audio analysis and video analysis. Each part will first introduces how these non-traditional data can be converted into mathematical objects suitable for computer processing and, particularly, for the application of machine learning techniques. Then students will learn a selection of supervised and unsupervised learning algorithms that are effective for text, audio, image/video analysis. Finally, students will explore major applications of these techniques such as sentiment analysis, speech emotion recognition, face recognition, pedestrian detection, keyframe extraction.

|Additional Requirements and/or Comments: |
The course requires a basic programming background and that is why COMP 112, QAC155, QAC156 etc. are formal prerequisites. In addition students are expected to have at least an introductory course in data analysis. Pre-req overrides will be approved by the Professor for students who satisfy this basic requirement through other course work. The course includes a strong lab component and programming in Python is a significant part of the course work.
Professor Kaparakis will attend to Pre-req override requests during pre-registration, but will not be the instructor for this course.
