Course Work

This STAT 598 is a one-credit hour summer short course on machine learning. Students registered in the course are expected to do three tasks.

  • Weekly Reading Group. You are required to attend the weekly machine learning reading group, and present at least once in the meeting.

  • Summer Workshop. You are required to attend the two-day summer workshop in July. More information will be announced later.

  • Submit a 1-page summary outlining one technique you learned during the summer, and plans to apply it to your research.

Who Should Take the Course?

This is a light-weighted seminar course designed to help students explore research topics in machine learning. If you are on campus during the summer, and you are planning to attend the weekly reading group anyway, this one-credit hour course would be perfect. There is no lecture and no homework assignment. All you need to do is to attend the meetings, present at least once, and write a one-page report.
