In SS 2024, the course will not be held. However, if you want to learn the material on your own or with recordings from previous years, there will be an exam.

Exam Breakdown

The exam grade can be increased by 0.3 if (≥8) exercises are submitted and sufficient attempt was made to solve them.

What's this course about?

In this course, you will get to know some of the widely used machine learning techniques. We will cover methods for classification and regression, methods for clustering and dimensionality reduction, and generative models. In the exercise class, you will transform the theoretical knowledge into practical knowledge and learn how to use the machine learning tools to solve engineering problems. For a more detailed description see the module handbook.

How does it work?


The theoretical background will be given in 2h/week lectures with a mixture of slides (motivational examples, key concepts), blackboard (important mathematical background), and animations (algorithm demonstrations).

Apply to Problems

Exercise handouts are given beforehand. During exercise class TAs give you hints on how to solve them and explain any questions about previous exercise. Computational problems can be solved in any programing language, however, the solutions will be in Python.


All course material (lecture notes, slides, exercise handouts etc.) will be uploaded to Moodle.


For any organizational questions write an email to the head TA.
