Maschinelles Lernen bezeichnet Methoden um Muster unter Nutzung von Vorwissen in strukturierten Daten aufzufinden. In diesem Seminar werden aktuelle Themen anhand von Konferenzbeiträgen aus dem Bereich Maschinelles Lernen behandelt. Dazu gehören Anwendungen in der Robotik, der Signalverarbeitung (z. B. blinde Quellentrennung), Empfehlungsdienste (Recommender Systems) und sich zeitlich verändernde Daten. Jeder Student wählt eine wissenschaftliche Veröffentlichung, die er im Seminar präsentiert.

Teilnehmerzahl: 12 Studenten (Master).
Registrierung: per e-Mail an Rudolph Triebel und unter TUM online.

Description Machine Learning studies computational methods that find patterns in structured data. In this seminar we will discuss current trends in machine learning based on research articles, including applications in robotics, signal processing (e.g. blind source separation), recommender systems and time varying data. Every student picks a recent research paper on machine learning that he presents in the seminar.

Attendance is limited to 12 students (Master).
Registration: send email to Rudolph Triebel and on TUM online.

French-German Machine Learning Symposium

French-German Machine Learning Symposium

The French-German Machine Learning Symposium aims to strengthen interactions and inspire collaborations between both countries. We invited some of the leading ML researchers from France and Germany to this two-day symposium to give a glimpse into their research, and engage in discussions on the future of machine learning and how to strengthen research collaborations in ML between France and Germany.

The list of speakers includes Yann LeCun, Cordelia Schmid, Jean-Bernard Lasserre, Bernhard Schölkopf, and many more! For the full program please visit the webpage.
