From Algorithms to Z-Scores

The materials here form a textbook for a course in mathematical probability and statistics for computer science students.

Computer science examples are used throughout, in areas such as: computer networks; data and text mining; computer security; remote sensing; computer performance evaluation; software engineering; data management; etc.

The R statistical/data manipulation language is used throughout. Since this is a computer science audience, a greater sophistication in programming can be assumed. It is recommended that the R tutorial, R for Programmers, be used as a supplement.

Throughout the units, mathematical theory and applications are interwoven, with a strong emphasis on modelling.

A Course in Machine Learning

CIML is a set of introductory materials that covers most major aspects of modern machine learning (supervised learning, unsupervised learning, large margin methods, probabilistic modeling, learning theory, etc.).

Its focus is on broad applications with a rigorous backbone. A subset can be used for an undergraduate course; a graduate course could probably cover the entire material and then some.
