Introduces the concepts and skills necessary to effectively use information technology. Includes basic concepts and some practical skills with computer and networks. Prerequisites: none.
SoilGridsm: Global gridded soil information based on machine learning
Our graduate degree programs offer courses in all fields, covering sociology, humanities, science and technology, and health sciences, in Thai, bilingual, and international programs. There are two types of lecture sessions: normal programs are conducted in office hours and special programs in the evenings or on weekends. Unlike undergraduate degree programs, students in master degree programs can pursue their own interests in our research-oriented programs. All programs collaborate with various external organizations, in the public and private sectors, and non-profit organizations.
Computer Science (COM S)
Machine learning ML is the study of computer algorithms that improve automatically through experience and by the use of data. Machine learning algorithms build a model based on sample data, known as " training data ", in order to make predictions or decisions without being explicitly programmed to do so. A subset of machine learning is closely related to computational statistics , which focuses on making predictions using computers; but not all machine learning is statistical learning. The study of mathematical optimization delivers methods, theory and application domains to the field of machine learning. Data mining is a related field of study, focusing on exploratory data analysis through unsupervised learning.
So computational linguistics is very important. Computational linguistics is the scientific and engineering discipline concerned with understanding written and spoken language from a computational perspective, and building artifacts that usefully process and produce language, either in bulk or in a dialogue setting. To the extent that language is a mirror of mind, a computational understanding of language also provides insight into thinking and intelligence. And since language is our most natural and most versatile means of communication, linguistically competent computers would greatly facilitate our interaction with machines and software of all sorts, and put at our fingertips, in ways that truly meet our needs, the vast textual and other resources of the internet.
