Udacity Upgrades Their Machine Learning Courses
Udacity, in partnership with Georgia Tech, has upgraded their machine learning selection. Courses are taught by Professor Charles Isbell of Georgia Tech and Professor Michael Littman of Brown University. A brief description of the offerings:
The first course in their series, Supervised Learning covers how your phone recognizes your voice, how your email filters spam, and basically, how a computer learns.
Closely related to pattern recognition, Unsupervised Learning drives functionality like Netflix and Amazon recommendations. It’s a powerful tool for identifying structure in data.
Reinforcement Learning is the third course in the Udacity series and deals with artificial intelligence, or how to teach computers to behave like humans. The approach combines behaviorist psychology with computer programming.
