MATH/COMP 562: Theory of Machine Learning

Winter 2021, Adam Oberman


McGill has announced online teaching for this course, at least until January 24th. I hope we can return to in person teaching, which will be better for group work and presentations.


Prerequisites: MATH 462 or COMP 451 or (COMP 551, MATH 222, MATH 223 and MATH 324) or ECSE 551.

Grading (TBD)

I'm hoping we will return to in person teaching. Graded material will depend on if we return to in person classes. The grading scheme will be adjusted once we know if we can return to in person teaching.
