Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Goals:
Upon successful participation in the course, students will understand the fundamentals of machine learning and how to apply basic machine learning approaches/ideas in theory and practice.

Lecture Contents:
* What is Machine Learning?
* Basic Machine Learning pipelines
* Linear models for regression
* Linear models for classification
* Model validation and model selection
* Kernels
* Neural networks
* Dimensionality reduction
* Probabilistic modeling
* Generative modeling
* Deep generative models

Method:
Lecture (recorded lectures will be made available via Moodle) + pen & paper exercises + programming exercises

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam
Programming exercises

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

50% Written exam
50% Programming exercises
Voluntary pen&paper exercises

P = Average percentage on the final written exam and the programming exercises

85% <= P <= % Sehr Gut (1)
74% <= P < 85% Gut (2)
62% <= P < 74% Befriedigend (3)
50% <= P < 62% Genügend (4)
0% <= P < 50% Nicht Genügend (5)

At least 50% on the final written exam and 50% on the programming exercises must be achieved for a passing grade.

Examination topics
