Machine Learning from a matrix algebra viewpoint using MatLab

This course is aiming at provinding students with an enough background to start with machine learning within a matrix algebra framework. Simulations are to be conducted using MatLab as well as some matrix equation typesetting basics in LaTeX will be explained.
