A Great Intro to Machine Learning

CS4641 has been a really great experience. The class covers a broad range of introductory ML techniques through lecture which culminate in a large group project. My team worked on using the Million Song Database to look at the feasability of creating taylored running playlists. Some of the largest tasks I owned while working on the project were:

  • Combining the SQL database with the genre data into a csv
  • Understanding the online example scripts for creating & pruning a decision tree
  • Creating strong visuals of the decision tree
  • Summarizing the results of the unsupervised and supervised methods

For more info on the project look at our Github repository.

Big thanks to my team: Reagan Matthews, Dylan Reese, & David Wen.
