Course Description

The field of artificial intelligence (AI) has been rapidly advancing in recent years, and one of the most powerful techniques for machine learning is the artificial neural network (ANN). ANNs are designed to mimic the structure and function of the human brain, allowing them to learn from data and make predictions. One popular application of ANNs is in regression analysis, which is used to model and predict continuous variables based on input data. In the course "Artificial Neural Network for Regression," students will learn how to apply ANNs to regression problems and gain a deep understanding of the underlying mathematical principles. The course will begin with an introduction to ANNs and their structure, including the concepts of neurons, layers, and activation functions. Students will also learn about the different types of ANNs, including feedforward and recurrent networks, and how to choose the appropriate type for a given problem. Next, the course will cover the basics of regression analysis, including linear and nonlinear regression, as well as the limitations of traditional regression methods. Students will learn how ANNs can overcome these limitations and provide more accurate and reliable predictions. The course will then delve into the details of training ANNs for regression, including how to choose appropriate loss functions and optimization algorithms. Students will learn about the backpropagation algorithm, which is used to update the weights of the network and improve its performance. Throughout the course, students will work on hands-on exercises and projects to apply the concepts they have learned to real-world problems. They will also learn how to evaluate the performance of their models and fine-tune them for optimal results. Upon completion of the course, students will have a strong foundation in the theory and practice of using ANNs for regression analysis. They will be able to apply this knowledge to a wide range of applications, including finance, healthcare, and engineering, where accurate predictions are critical for success.
