Intended learning outcomes *

On successful completion of the course, the student will:
* be able to re-implement a classical machine learning algorithm as a scalable machine learning algorithm
* be able to design and train a layered neural network system
apply a trained layered neural network system to make useful predictions or classifications in an application area
* be able to elaborate the performance tradeoffs when parallelizing machine learning algorithms as well as the limitations in different network environments
* be able to identify appropriate distributed machine learning algorithms to efficiently solve classification and pattern recognition problems.
* be able to discuss, analyze, present, and critically review the very latest research advancements in the areas of Large Scale Machine Learning and Deep Learning and make connections to knowledge in related fields.
