About the Course

In today's rapidly advancing technological landscape, supervised machine learning has emerged as a powerful tool for promoting positive social change. This course aims to provide a comprehensive introduction to the principles and applications of supervised machine learning in the context of social change. Students will develop a deep understanding of how supervised learning algorithms can be harnessed to address societal issues, analyze social data, and make data-driven decisions. This course is project-driven, and the group project will allow students to apply their knowledge to a social issue of their choice and demonstrate their ability to leverage supervised machine learning techniques to drive positive change. While no prior knowledge of machine learning is required, a basic understanding of programming concepts and data analysis will be beneficial.

Familiarity with the Python programming language is mandatory as it will be the primary language used throughout the course.
