  • 1. Crash course in probability theory and statistics – part 1 Machine Learning, Mon Apr 14, 2008
  • 2. Motivation Problem: To avoid relying on “magic” we need mathematics. For machine learning we need to quantify: ●Uncertainty in data measures and conclusions ●“Goodness” of model (when confronted with data) ●Expected error and expected success rates ●...and many similar quantities...
