Unlocking ML with Math

ML, in general, is like a coin with two faces: one is the side of Programming and the other is Mathematics. And we will explore the Math side in this session by Soumyadeep Bose, your friendly neighborhood ai/ml guy. You will get to experience the world of ML through the lens of Maths. And believe it or not, the world is indeed beautiful! So, buckle up peeps! You're in for a hell of a ride! πŸš€

About this event

Hey y'all! Hope you're doing great! πŸ‘‹

We know you have been missing ML from the house of GDSC HITK. So here we are! (Once again...)

Machine Learning has a lot of math behind it. While it's absolutely not necessary to be a Math wizard to do ML, we would want you to be at least familiar with the basics so that it becomes easier for you to understand other upcoming cool ML stuff. So after the introductory session and the roadmap session, now we present a mind-exploding session on the basics of the Math needed to get started with ML. This session is going to be educative in nature, as in Soumyadeep will be teaching you basic Math for ML, and it also might be somewhat longer than usual, so, do keep a good stock of coffee by your side. You might need it.


In this session, Soumyadeep will guide you through and by the end you will know:

  1. The basics of Matrices for ML.
  2. The basics of Partial Differentiation.
  3. What the hell is Gradient Descent?
  4. What is the Convergence Algorithm?
  5. The basics of some performance metrics.
  6. How to plot some basic graphs using matplotlib.
  7. How to use numpy for basic linear algebra.
  8. How to do basic Linear Regression using scikit-learn

We know this session is going to be a tad bit different than other sessions. There will be fun and memes in this session too, but reality is not always fun. At some point you're gonna have to get into the cockpit of your spaceship, put the seatbelt on, turn up the levers, and whoosh... there you go! If you feel like ML is your thing, then common, turn on your computers and let's venture into the world of ML! πŸš€
