#Calculus #Machine #Learning #Mathematics #Webinar

A lecture on “Calculus for Machine Learning” to enlighten the students on the applications of calculus in machine learning is delivered by Mr V Ganesh Kumar (Assistant Professor, H&S) who is the resource person for the day.

  • The speaker started the session with a review on the definition of calculus by highlighting the difference between algebra and calculus, also taking note of the branches of calculus ie. Differential and Integral calculus.
  • Basic concepts of calculus such as Partial Derivatives, Chain rule, Maxima and Minima, Jacobian and Extreme values were discussed with relevant examples.
  • Role of Calculus in Machine Learning was disuceesd with the help of the Gradient descent method and Loss Function.
  • The implementation of calculus in python was explained with the help of a program.
  • Concepts like Regression line and Least Square method were discussed to help the participants get a better understanding.
  • A quiz on “Mathematics for Machine Learning” was conducted in the latter part of the session.
