Course Description

Learners will discover how to apply advanced linear algebra and its principles to derive machine learning implementations in this 14-video course. Explore PCA, tensors, decomposition, and singular-value decomposition, as well as how to reconstruct a rectangular matrix from singular-value decomposition. Key concepts covered here include how to use Python libraries to implement principal component analysis with matrix multiplication; sparse matrix and its operations; tensors in linear algebra and arithmetic operations that can be applied; and how to implement Hadamard product on tensors by using Python. Next, learn how to calculate singular-value decomposition and reconstruct a rectangular matrix; learn the characteristics of probability applicable in machine learning; and study probability in linear algebra and its role in machine learning. You will learn types of random variables and functions used to manage random numbers in probability; examine the concept and characteristics of central limit theorem and means and learn common usage scenarios; and examine the concept of parameter estimation and Gaussian distribution. Finally, learn the characteristics of binomial distribution with real-time examples.
