Lernziel |
Students understand a broad range of machine learning concepts, get to know established and advanced learning methods and algorithms, are able to apply them to real-world problems, and can objectively assess the quality of the results. In addition, students learn how to use Python-based machine learning software such as scikit-learn. |
