Seminar Machine Learning



Seminar Machine Learning in the winter term 2012/2013 About Machine Learning Machine Learning, a branch of artificial intelligence, investigates approaches for automatically extracting knowledge from example data. In particular, a machine learning system is intended to discover universal patterns in the set of learning data in order to allow for general predictions. Machine learning is an active area of research with a broad range of applications; it is currently and will be of fundamental importance in the future development of intelligent systems. This is an introductory seminar: we will deal with basic aspects of machine learning.

General Information General methods of machine learning such as Supervised learning: classification and regression Unsupervised learning: clustering and dimensionality reduction Reinforcement learning


committed students who study Audiences

Bachelor Informatik, Master Informatik, or Diplom Informatik (PO 2004 or PO 2010), and who want to take a Proseminar or Hauptseminar Master Computational Logic, and who want to take a seminar

Prerequisites in this seminar we will deal with basic approaches of machine learning; no prerequisites required

Requirements for passing
