CS229 is the undergraduate machine learning course at Stanford. You can see the lectures from iTunesU and Youtube. We are going to be working through the course at one lecture a week starting 1 September 2010 and finishing 22 December 2010. There are four problem sets which we'll be doing every 4 weeks.


Course Description

This course provides a broad introduction to machine learning and statistical pattern recognition. Topics include: supervised learning (generative/discriminative learning, parametric/non-parametric learning, neural networks, support vector machines); unsupervised learning (clustering, dimensionality reduction, kernel methods); learning theory (bias/variance tradeoffs; VC theory; large margins); reinforcement learning and adaptive control. The course will also discuss recent applications of machine learning, such as to robotic control, data mining, autonomous navigation, bioinformatics, speech recognition, and text and web data processing.


  • one lecture a week
  • one problem set every five weeks
