Competencies / intended learning achievements

1. Lecture:

Machine learning plays an important role in a variety of applications such as data mining, natural language processing, image recognition, expert systems, and autonomous driving. The lecture provides an overview of the basic concepts, techniques, and algorithms of modern machine learning. It also aims to provide rigorous mathematical foundations of the methods covered.

2. Exercise:

Students will get hands-on experience in applying machine learning algorithms on real life problems.
