The course aims to familiarize students with advanced machine learning and data mining methods towards design and development of solutions for data sets that are characterized by complexity and large volume (Bigdata).
Real world cases will be presented in the area of Web and social media/networks.
Data Preprocessing: Linear and nonlinear dimensionality reduction, spectral methods, Feature selection, Cross-validation.
Supervised learning: Linear Regression, Support vector machines (SVMs), Unsupervised learning: Gaussian Mixture models, EM algorithm, Spectral Clustering.
Learning in Graphs: ranking algorithms, evaluation measures, degeneracy and community mining methods.
Feature extraction (measures), Indexing (pros and cons) with regards to bigtable.,Retrieval functions (tf, idf, BM25 intuition etc), Adhoc retrieval – Filtering, classification
An introduction (Hadoop, Mapreduce),No SQL databases,algorithms in Mapreduce
Graph Mining & Community Evaluation algorithms - applications in social networks.
