Introduction to Data Analysis with Artificial Intelligence Algorithms

Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning algorithms are involved in a vast variety of scientific and industrial projects, contributing to the solution of the emerging problems, from data modeling and analysis to face recognition and self-driving cars. In recent years, researchers and professionals have been engaging with artificial intelligence algorithms because they have been successfully deployed in an unusually wide range of Scientific, Technological and Business fields. Regardless of the database, their basic function is accomplished by a mathematical model describing the interactions of the variables. The relationship between independent and dependent variables is often non-linear and complex, and mathematical models are aiming at forming a generalized relationship. Their success depends on the mathematical formulation and the underlying theory, the algorithmic application, the prediction errors, as well as the generalization of the results.
