### INQ0092522 - MACHINE LEARNING (MOD. B) (A) 2022-2023 - LAST DIGIT ID 0-4 - PROF. FEDERICO CHIARIOTTI

**Target skills and knowledge: **

The
aim of this course is to provide the fundamentals and basic principles
of the learning problem as well as to introduce the most common machine
learning algorithms. The course will be complemented by hands-on
experience.**Examination methods: **

The evaluation of the acquired skills and knowledge will be performed using two contributions:

1. A written exam (30 points).

2. Three simple homeworks to be done using Python (up to 3 bonus points).

**Exam dates:**

- 24/01/2023
- 09/02/2023
- 28/06/2023
- 07/09/2023
- 21/09/2023
