Machine Learning: a methodology survey with practical examples.
The seminar will survey some of the many methods used in machine
learning. I will present parametric and non-parametric methods both for
supervised and unsupervised learning, the focus being on pattern
classification and clustering.
I will also shortly describe a number of problems I have been involved
with. These include mapping acoustic to visual information in speech,
