Learning and Teaching Methods
Through instruction and self-learning the students learn the construction behind neural networks, the up- and downsides of training via backpropagation and a problem-specific grasp for the suitability of neural network classes. Thus, their foundational knowledge is gained to subsequently construct a machine learning workflow from basic building blocks.
