DTSC71-306: Modern Machine Learning Models


This subject is designed for students who already have a basic understanding of machine learning and want to deepen their knowledge using more advanced techniques. The subject focuses on advanced machine learning methods that are relevant and effective in many real-life and business applications. Students will be provided the necessary tools to wrangle data, implement and train machine learning models, and evaluate the performance and feasibility of these models in the context of the environment where these models are going to be applied. Advanced visualisation tools will be used to create dynamic visual representations of data.

Enrolment requirements



Assumed knowledge:

Assumed knowledge is the minimum level of knowledge of a subject area that students are assumed to have acquired through previous study. It is the responsibility of students to ensure they meet the assumed knowledge expectations of the subject. Students who do not possess this prior knowledge are strongly recommended against enrolling and do so at their own risk. No concessions will be made for students’ lack of prior knowledge.

Assumed Prior Learning (or equivalent):

Basic Python (equivalent to DTSC71-100). Basic concepts of data science (equivalent to DTSC71-200).
