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.
Inhalt This lecture is a compact version of the two-semester course *Fundamentals of Machine Learning* + *Advanced Machine Learning*:
Classification (linear and quadratic discriminant analysis, neural networks, linear and kernelized support vector machines, decision trees and random forests), least squares and regularized regression, Gaussian processes, unsupervised learning (density estimation, cluster analysis, Gaussian mixture models and expectation maximization, principal component analysis, bilinear decompositions), directed probabilistic graphical models, optimization for machine learning, structured learning
Voraussetzungen recommended are: solid knowledge of basic calculus, statistics, and linear algebra
cannot be combined with *Fundamentals of Machine Learning* or *Advanced Machine Learning*, successful homework solutions (at least 50% of total achievable points) and oral examination
