Course content

Machine learning, data mining and high-performance computing are concerned with the automated analysis of large-scale data by computer, in order to extract the useful knowledge hidden in it. Using state-of-the-art artificial intelligence methods, this technology builds computer systems capable of learning from past experience, allowing them to adapt to new tasks, predict future developments, and provide intelligent decision support. Bristol's recent investment in the BlueCrystal supercomputer - and our Exabyte University research theme - show our commitment to research at the cutting edge in this area.

This programme is aimed at giving you a solid grounding in machine learning, data mining and high-performance computing technology, and will equip you with the skills necessary to construct and apply these tools and techniques to the solution of complex scientific and business problems.
