Machine Learning

In response to the possibilities for positive law and legal scholarship created by the digitalization of legal text, this condensed course explains the logic of the most characteristic techniques of machine learning data analysis, and shows hands on how they can be implemented.

Prior knowledge in computer science, or machine learning more specifically, is not required. But participants should have an understanding of (at least elementary) statistics.

 The course is offered in conjunction with Professor Engel’s Chair in Experimental Law and Economics at Erasmus University Rotterdam.
