This unit provides the fundamental mathematical and statistical knowledge to understand important concepts in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Data Science (DS). The contents of the unit are selected carefully to cover the most frequent mathematical and statistical tools and techniques to help students easily learn technical topics in AI and DS, enabling students to obtain enough experience to expand their knowledge into new directions if required. The unit builds a strong bridge between simple and core mathematical and statistical concepts and advanced techniques that are used in developing modern algorithms in AI and DS.
These are the Learning Outcomes (ULO) for this UnitAt the completion of this Unit successful students can:
