Courses in winter term 2014 / Lecture Machine Learning 2

Many labor-intensive problems can be automatized by modeling the behavior of the computer system manually. Nevertheless, for many problems this is not possible because the system has to adapt to feedback on actions or the problem size is simply too large.

Machine learning (also known as data mining, pattern recognition, data analysis or classification) is an area of research at the edge of computer science, artificial intelligence, mathematics and statistics which addresses these problems. It covers general methods and techniques which can be applied on problems like customer behavior prediction, controlling of robotics, spam recognition or Protein folding prediction.

In this lecture we study advanced methods of machine learning. (Convolutional) Neural Networks, Gaussian Processes and Factorization Models are introduced. Additionally, the problem of ranking will be investigated.
