Machine Learning for Robotics and Computer Vision (IN3200) (2h + 2h, 5ECTS)

WS 2017, TU München


You can use our library for the programming exercises: mlcv-tutorial

Beginning from Monday, 13.11.2017, the tutorial will be taking place in Room 00.08.059.

There is no tutorial on Monday, 20.11.2017.


Some students noted that their exam registration status in TUMonline is: "registered (preliminary registration)" with an exclamation mark in yellow circle. As far as we know that does not affect you. You can come to the exam.

No cheatsheets, calculators or other assistances are allowed.

There is NO repeat exam. The course is offered again in the next semester.

In this lecture, the students will be introduced into the most frequently used machine learning methods in computer vision and robotics applications. The major aim of the lecture is to obtain a broad overview of existing methods, and to understand their motivations and main ideas in the context of computer vision and pattern recognition.
