Advanced Machine Learning with ENCOG

by Abhishek Kumar

In this course you will learn advanced topics related to machine learning for more accurate neural network predictive models. You will also learn different types of neural networks and their implementations using open source machine learning framework ENCOG.

What you'll learn

Are you worried about your neural network model prediction accuracy? Are you not sure about your neural network model selection for your machine learning problem? This course will introduce you to more advanced topics in machine learning.

The previous introductory course, "Introduction to Machine Learning with ENCOG 3," laid out a solid foundation of machine learning and neural networks. This course will build upon that foundation for more advanced machine learning implementations.

In this Advanced Machine Learning tutorial, you will learn:

  • The various neural network optimization techniques to overcome the problems of underfitting and overfitting
  • How to create more accurate predictive models with ENCOG
  • You will also see the overall picture of various neural network architectures and reasons for their existence
  • Learn implementation of various supervised feed forward and feedback networks

During the whole course, we will be using open source machine learning framework ENCOG to implement various concepts discussed in this course. Although the implementations in this course are ENCOG-based, concepts discussed in this course are widely applicable in other frameworks or even in custom development.
