Moodle, LMU-Cast and Uni2Work
We are maintaining an online presence on YouTube to present our service and to communicate with our students in form of lecture recordings.YouTube is a service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, a subsidiary of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA.
We would like to point out that this might cause user data to be processed outside the European Union, particularly in the United States. This may increase risks for users that, for example, may make subsequent access to the user data more difficult. We also do not have access to this user data. Access is only available to YouTube.

Machine Learning is a data-driven approach for the development of technical solutions. Initially motivated by the adaptive capabilities of biological systems, machine learning has increasing impact in many fields, such as vision, speech recognition, machine translation, and bioinformatics, and is a technological basis for the emerging field of Big Data.
The lecture will cover:
- Supervised learning: the goal here is to learn functional dependencies for classification and regression. We cover linear systems, basis function approaches, kernel approaches and neural networks. We will cover the recent developments in deep learning which lead to exciting applications in speech recognition and vision.
- Unsupervised Learning: the goal here is to compactly describe important structures in the data. Typical representatives are clustering and principal component analysis
- Graphical models (Bayesian networks, Markov networks), which permit a unified description of high-dimensional probabilistic dependencies
- Reinforcement Learning as the basis for the learning-based optimization of autonomous agents
- Some theoretical aspects: frequentist statistics, Bayesian statistics, statistical learning theory
The technical topics will be illustrated with a number of real-world applications.
