Machine Learning and Molecules (MLmol)
Students write their own neural network code from scratch using Python and use it to predict chemical properties of molecules. The performance is compared to standard machine learning packages such as scikit-learn, Keras, and DeepChem.
Basic principles behind Python programming, machine learning, and cheminformatics. Classification and regression using neural networks. Activation functions, back propagation using gradient descent, Overfitting, regularisation, hyperparameter optimisation, and training/validation/test sets. SMILES strings, molecular fingerprints, and graph convolution as applied to molecules.
Data manipulation and visualisation using Pandas, numpy, and Matplotlib/Seaborn. Manipulation of chemical data using RDKit. Use of scikit-learn, Keras, and DeepChem.
Prediction of chemical properties using machine learning. Critical evaluation of machine learning models.

Oral examination, 30 min
- Type of assessment details
- In the event of timely submission, a final 30-minute individual oral examination is held during the block's examination period without preparation based on the project report. The exam begins with a 10-20 minute presentation from the examinee, after which the internal assessors ask questions in the project area.
