**Statistical Learning and Sequential Prediction**

by Alexander Rakhlin, Karthik Sridharan

**Publisher**: University of Pennsylvania 2014**Number of pages**: 261

**Description**:

This course will focus on theoretical aspects of Statistical Learning and Sequential Prediction. The minimax approach, which we emphasize throughout the course, offers a systematic way of comparing learning problems. Beyond the theoretical analysis, we will discuss learning algorithms and, in particular, an important connection between learning and optimization.
