Content, Learning Outcome and Preconditions
This course is focusing on methods for data processing, optimization and machine learning. First we will learn the basics of data decorrelation, reduction and optimization algorithms. Based on these new skills, we dive into machine learning topics, such as clustering, classification and regression with tree based algorithms and neural networks. In the last part deep learning models and different architectures will be introduced and explained.
After successful completion of the module the students are able to:
- basic data transformations
- knowledge in various optimization algorithms
- k-means clustering
- decision trees,
- convolutional neural networks
- generative models
Linear Algebra, basic Analysis, a programming language of choice
