Course Description

This course is for you if you want to fully equip yourself with the art of applied machine learning using MATLAB. This course is also for you if you want to apply the most commonly used data preprocessing techniques without having to learn all the complicated maths. Additionally, this course is also for you if you have had previous hours and hours of machine learning implementation but could never figure out how to further improve the peformance of the machine learning algorithms. By the end of this course, you will have at your fingertips, a vast variety of most commonly used data preprocessing techniques that you can use instantly to maximize your insight into your data set. 

The approach in this course is very practical and we will start everything from very scratch. We will immediately start coding after a couple of introductory tutorials and we try to keep the theory to bare minimal. All the coding will be done in MATLAB which is one of the fundamental programming languages for engineer and science students and is frequently used by top data science research groups world wide.

Below is the brief outline of this course. 

Segment 1: Introduction to course and MATLAB

Segment 2: Handling Missing Values 

Segment 3: Dealing with Categorical Variables

Segment 4: Outlier Detection

Segment 5: Feature Scalling and Data Discretization

Segment 6: Project: Selecting Techniques for your Dataset

Nouman Azam

Your MATLAB Professor

I am Dr. Nouman Azam and i am Assistant Professor in Computer Science. I teach online courses related to MATLAB Programming to more than 10,000 students on different online plateforms. 

The focus in these courses is to explain different aspects of MATLAB and how to use them effectively in routine daily life activities. In my courses, you will find topics such as MATLAB programming, designing gui's, data analysis and visualization. 

Machine learning techinques using MATLAB is one of my favourate topic. During my research career i explore the use of MATLAB in implementing machine learning techniques such as bioinformatics, text summarization, text categorization, email filtering, malware analysis, recommender systems and medical decision making.
