IS 452: Introduction to Machine Learning for Management Decisions3 ECTS

Due to advances in data availability and computing power, machine learning (ML) applications are becoming increasingly important for both industry and public institutions. Examples include HR managers using ML predictions to assess the future job performance of applicants during the hiring process, insurance agents using ML to calculate risk premiums of potential customers, banks using ML to assess the default risk of borrowers, and judges relying on algorithmically generated risk assessments to make bail decisions. Against this backdrop, it is increasingly important to understand how modern ML methods work and how they can support decisions.
This course provides an introduction to the workings, opportunities, and risks of using ML applications to support management decisions. Topics covered include data preparation, integration, analysis, Supervised ML, and the importance of ML applications in decision making processes. Students will implement and apply the methods using the Python programming language and associated libraries.
