Content

This module is designed to teach basic principles and simple algorithms from the field of statistical learning.
Topics include: different learning problems and approaches to solving them, basic principles of statistical learning (Bayes' theorem, decision theory, basic problems, evaluation of results), simple baseline models from supervised and unsupervised learning (density estimation, classification, clustering), ML in a social context.

Objectives

The students know basic principles and methods of machine learning and are aware of their principal limitations. In the exercises, they have learned to solve small practical problems with the methods covered and to implement corresponding algorithms in practice.
