Statistical Learning and Sequential Prediction

Publisher: University of Pennsylvania 2014
Number of pages: 261
This course will focus on theoretical aspects of Statistical Learning and Sequential Prediction. The minimax approach, which we emphasize throughout the course, offers a systematic way of comparing learning problems. Beyond the theoretical analysis, we will discuss learning algorithms and, in particular, an important connection between learning and optimization.

This book describes and implements models of rational agents for (PO)MDPs and Reinforcement Learning. One motivation is to create richer models of human planning, which capture human biases. The book assumes basic programming experience.

This book discusses the principles of learning algorithms for deep architectures, in particular those exploiting as building blocks unsupervised learning of single-layer models such as Restricted Boltzmann Machines, used to construct deeper models.

The book provides a review of different approaches to classification, compares their performance on challenging data-sets, and draws conclusions on their applicability to realistic industrial problems. A wide variety of approaches has been taken.

This book brings together many of the important new ideas in learning, and explains them in a statistical framework. The authors emphasize the methods and their conceptual underpinnings rather than their theoretical properties.
