The aim of the course is to provide fundamentals of machine learning as well as introduce basic concepts of data manipulation and processing, mathematics, statistics and probability insofar they are related to machine learning.
After completing the course, the student shall be able to:
1. describe fundamentals of machine learning,
2. understand the basic of data manipulation and processing and also
3. perform basic mathematical and statistical operations for machine learning using Python.
The course content covers:
- Fundamentals of machine learning: Overview, AI components, branches, goals, types, algorithms, and applications. Basic mathematical background for machine learning using Python.
- Introduction to data: Data, data manipulation, processing and visualization. Basics of statistics and probability required to process data.

Written assignment (INL1), 2 credits, examines the learning objectives 1-3, marks Fail (U), or Pass (G).
A student who has a certificate from MDU regarding a disability has the opportunity to submit a request for supportive measures during written examinations or other forms of examination, in accordance with the Rules and Regulations for Examinations at First-cycle and Second-cycle Level at Mälardalen University (2020/1655). It is the examiner who takes decisions on any supportive measures, based on what kind of certificate is issued, and in that case which measures are to be applied.
Suspicions of attempting to deceive in examinations (cheating) are reported to the Vice-Chancellor, in accordance with the Higher Education Ordinance, and are examined by the University’s Disciplinary Board. If the Disciplinary Board considers the student to be guilty of a disciplinary offence, the Board will take a decision on disciplinary action, which will be a warning or suspension.Study guide
