The course introduces the first tools for machine learning processing of quantitative and qualitative data.
Students will learn how to manipulate data in order to prepare it for analysis.
The analysis methods that will be learned allow for automatic classification; construction of predictive models; evaluation of the performance of the methods; diagnosis of the limits of the applications of these methods


Iragael JOLY, Irene GANNAZ


.1 Issues in automatic classification
supervised vs unsupervised methods; some unsupervised methods (k-means, dendrograms).
.2 Overview of supervised methods
decision tree, naive bayesian, logistic, SVM, neurons, decision rules....
Implement and question the qualities and defects of each method.
.3 Evaluation of methods.
Performance criteria (quality vs complexity; predictions/black boxes vs knowledge/white boxes)
cross-validation (of predictions, parameters...).
.4 Interests and limitations
Data selection bias, model confirmation bias (cf. C. O'Donnell), etc.
Micro-workers of clicks (AmazonTurk, FB moderators, apple "spies", etc).


Students will have taken and validated the following courses: Probability and Statistics; Programming with R, Programming with Python


This weighting is compatible with the organization of distance learning courses and exams

At least 2 marks for practical work or continuous assessment: TP1 and TP2
One exam grade : E1

Grade = 0.4*((TP1+TP2)/2) + 0.6 * E1

Cette pondération est compatible avec une organisation des enseignements et des examens en distanciel

Note de contrôle continu : TP (basée sur au moins 2 notes TP1 et TP2)
Note d'examen individuelle : EX
Note = 0.4*TP + 0.6*EX


The course exists in the following branches:

  • Curriculum - Engineer student Master SCM - Semester 7
  • Curriculum - Engineer student Master PD - Semester 7
