Learn classic Machine Learning (ML) techniques using Perl! Perl is not traditionally associated with ML, but its broad reach and expressive characteristics provide an attractive alternative to the more common ML languages like C and Lisp.
Well draw from several sources, especially Tom Mitchell's book Machine Learning, as inspiration for techniques presented. Special emphasis will be placed on the subject of Text Categorization, an area of active research and wide applicability.
The presenter will presume no significant experience in ML of his audience, but a good working knowledge of Perl will be helpful.
