Course Description

This course is a graduate course and is primarily project-oriented. This course teaches how to use machine learning techniques to build Intelligent Operations System (IOS) systems for the Internet.  The high-level objectives for these systems are that for the targeted networks/applications in the Internet:

1) What happened in the past can be reconstructed automatically and accurately;

2) What’s going on now can be detected/inferred accurately to trigger automatic mitigation or suggest immediate actions to the operators;

3) What will happen in the future can be predicted with high confidence.

IOS is at the intersection of machine learning, engineering, and systems, as illustrated in the below figure.

Through case studies based on recent research papers in top conferences, this course will cover the latest research progress in Intelligent Operations, and how  the latest techniques (time series analysis,  machine learning, deep learning, big data systems, streaming systems) can be applied to the field of Intelligent Operations.

Grading Policies

Attendance: 10%; Project: 90%
