Cs 410/610: Theoretical Foundations Of Computing, Thomas Sudkamp Oct 2007

Cs 410/610: Theoretical Foundations Of Computing, Thomas Sudkamp

Computer Science & Engineering Syllabi

This course is an introduction to one of the fundamental topics in the theory of computer science: computability theory. Computability theory is concerned with determining whether there is an algorithmic solution to a problem. The study of computability uses the Turing machine as the basic computational model. A Turing machine is a random access, read-write, finite state automaton. Although the Turing machine provides a simple computational framework, the Church-Turing thesis asserts that any problem that can be solved in any algorithmic manner can be solved by a Turing machine.

Cs 790: Information Theory, Machine Learning And Statistics, Shaojun Wang Oct 2007

Cs 790: Information Theory, Machine Learning And Statistics, Shaojun Wang

Computer Science & Engineering Syllabi

Information theory deals with encoding data in order to transmit it correctly and effectively. Statistics and machine learning deal with estimating models of data and predicting future observations. ls there any relationship between the two? It turns out, perhaps not surprisingly, that the most compact encoding of the data is by the probabilistic model that describes it best. In other words, there is a fundamental link between information and probability.

This course starts with the basic notions of information theory and explores its relationship to machine learning and statistics. The course will have a strong theoretical component, but will also ...
