CS3244 Module Review – Machine Learning
With machine learning the hottest topic in the AI world as of now (2016), this module is hugely popular. In fact it is overly subscribed this year, and I believe it will continue to be like that. For 16/17 Sem 1, Prof. Min-Yen Kan is taking over the module with new syllabus and python as the main programming language (try to guess the language used before). Continue reading
