Final Grades Posted  
Posted on Tuesday, 06 May 2003, 12:55PM  
I had a great time teaching this class. I think we all learned a lot
about machine learning. I look forward to reading your comments on
improving this class. Update: Tuesday, 06 May 2003, 03:45PM Oh
yeah, I forgot to mention that the graded tests are outside my office.

Extra Papers for Test 3  
Posted on Friday, 25 April 2003, 11:00AM  
Below is the announcement of a new and extremely important journal in machine learning.
You are all required to read the three papers below. They will be on the test.
We are pleased to announce the first volume of a new online journal, the Journal of Machine Learning Gossip, (http://www.jmlg.org/papers.htm). The volume includes the following awardwinning papers: Markov Indecision Processes: A Formal Model of DecisionMaking Under Extreme Confusion by Harry Q. Bovik, Judy Q. Goldsmith, Andrew Q. Klapper, and Michael Q. Littman Data Set Selection by Doudou LaLoudouana and Mambobo Bonouliqui Tarare On the Origin and Destiny of Inductive Machine Learning by Terran Lane(yes, its a joke) 
Review Session

As I mentioned in class, there will be a review session on Thursday
May 1 @2pm in the classrom. Also, those of you who did not fill out
the course evaluation please pick one up in my office.

New LearnOneRule  
Posted on Tuesday, 01 April 2003, 02:56PM  
The learnonerule
algorithm that I presented in class today was an ugly mixture of
learnonerule and CN2. I have replaced it with the real
learnonerule algorithm. Sorry about that!

Test 2 Graded

The grades are posted on the left. Again, please remember that the
final letter grades will be curved. If you want to pick up your test
drop by my office, otherwise I will be handing them out in class
tomorrow.

You should have also received an email with your grade.

Tutorials by Andrew Moore  
Posted on Sunday, 23 February 2003, 11:18AM  
There is a set of tutorials on machine
learning by Andrew Moore—a professor at CMU. They consist
of sets of slides in pdf format. The slides contain lots of pictures
and examples. You might find these useful when trying to understand
the material.

Test 1 Graded  
Posted on Friday, 14 February 2003, 12:39PM  
I have graded test 1 and the grades are posted. You can drop by my
office if you are eager to pick up your test or want to know your ID
number. Otherwise, I will hand them back in class on Tuesday. You
should not be too discouraged about a low "letter grade" as I might
have to curve the final grades. Still, if you are on the far left of
the graph, you will need to do better in order to get a B. There
was one problem. In question 6, after the first 3 examples it is known
that there is no hypothesis that can represent the concept. No one
metioned this fact! altough a couple of people bravely tried to extend
the hypothesis representation language in order to express this new
concept. I gave everyone 5 points in this question and 10 points if
you showed how to add examples 1 and 2.

You cannot view the class presentations using Internet Explorer since
it does not support MathML. You will need to use Mozilla.
