  • Machine learning
  • Deep Learning

Lectures will roughly follow the book: Artificial Intelligence a Modern Approach (3rd edition)

Organization: There are two lecture slots every week, on Tuesday and Friday (10:15 - 11:45). The first lecture will be on Tuesday 18.04 (see ILIAS for all appointments). During these slots, there will be live (in-person) lectures. These will be in-person only (not hybrid), but recordings will be made available on ILIAS.

Every week, we will also release an exercise sheet (on Friday) to be submitted before next Friday (8:00am). Your submissions will not be graded, but you will receive feedback from our tutors. On Friday, after the live lecture, one of our tutors will present the master solution and answer any questions you may have. The first exercise is due on 28.04. Participation in these weekly sessions and exercises is optional. The only requirement for passing the course is passing the final exam (date/format TBD).
