Advanced Chemometrics and Machine Learning
Basic chemometric methods like PCA and PLS are useful tools in
data analysis but in many data analytical problems more advanced
machine learning methods are necessary to solve the problems.
The methods studied in this course will be selected from these main topics: Data preprocessing methods, variable selection methods, clustering and classification techniques, non-linear regression and multi-way methods.
Computer exercises on real data using commercial software are an integrated part of the course.

The course introduces advanced chemometric methods and their use
on different kinds of multivariate data of relevance for research
After completing the course the student should be able to:
- Summarize basic chemometric methods
- Describe advanced chemometric methods for multivariate (clustering, classification and regression) data analysis
- Describe advanced techniques for data pre-preprocessing
- Describe advanced methods for variable selection
- Apply theory on real life data analytical cases
- Apply commercial software for data analysis
- Report in writing a full data analysis of a given problem including all aspects presented under Knowledge.
- Discuss advantages and drawbacks of advanced methods
The students will be introduced to the theory through lectures and seminars. The students will work on data analytical problems using the taught methods and software to analyse data. The students can bring their own data analytical problems to work on; this requires that the course teachers consider the data suitable for illustrating the taught methods. The results are presented in written reports which is orally defended at the end of the course.

Competences in the field of Exploratory Data Analysis /
Chemometrics (experience with PCA and PLS regression) is highly
recommended. The course coordinator should be contacted in case of
doubt about sufficient prerequisites.
Academic qualifications equivalent to a BSc degree is recommended.
The course is identical to the discontinued course LLEK10246U
