Graphical Models are a combination of probability theory and graph theory. They provide a powerful tool for dealing with complex problems involving uncertainty and are playing an increasingly important role in the design and analysis of machine learning algorithms. In this seminar several aspects of graphical models will be explored, such as the automatic learning of graphical models from data, its application for decision support, data analysis and visualization, as well as a new and prominent class of graph models known as Relational Graphical Models.

Talks can be given in English or German.

Supervisor: Leandro B. Marinho, Artus Krohn-Grimberghe
