Planned learning activities and teaching methods The teaching methodologies employed in this Curricular Unit allow the learning of the concepts and techniques of Machine Learning and Data Mining through exposition of theoretical subjects and use of online tutorials for study. The practical work, done in groups, allow the training/practicing the application of these theoretical aspects over real data, and will cover the discussion and learning about the most relevant practical problems that arise during these processes, and the main ways to surpass these problems. This way, the students will cover and experience the theoretical and practical subjects needed to reach the objectives of the Curricular Unit.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
