Learning Outcomes

The students are able to independently apply methods from machine learning on new data. This includes methods for classification, regression, dimensionality reduction and clustering. Moreover, the module teaches the mathematical skills (probability theory, optimization theory) needed to extend and theoretical analyze machine learning methods.


Probability theory, theory of estimation (e.g. Maximum likelihood, EM algorithm) Methods from Machine Learning: Dimensionality reduction (PCA, ICA), Clustering, Supervised learning (e.g. Regression, LDA, SVM, Gaussian processes)
