Course Material

1) The main learning source is the textbook by James, Witten, Hastie, Tibshirani (2013): "An Introduction to Statistical Learning". The textbook can be downloaded here:

There are 15 hours of youtube videos by two of the authors of the book, Trevor Hastie an Rob Tibshirani -the inventors of statistical learning - all links here.

2) All the lecture notes, recommended and compulsory exercises. Note that some classnotes that are made on the board are not necessarily available online, but these are also part of the course material.

3) Additional reading material will be clearly indicated in the modules and on the course page.

In-depth material:

For more rigorous treatment and a good in-depth overview of statistical learning methods, I recommend the book "The Elements of Statistical Learning" by Hastie, Tibshirani and Friedman, freely available here.
