Lecturers: Professor Christophe Ley (University of Luxembourg) and Professor Germain Van Bever (University of Namur)
In this short course, we shall make an introduction to classical tools in nonparametric classification. We shall also take a stroll along Machine Learning from a statistical perspective (discussing inter alia Random Forests), including a comparison to statistical learning. We shall illustrate the working of Machine Learning via some concrete applications, including a prediction of international football tournaments.
