02901 Advanced Topics in Machine Learning

August 28-September 1, 2017 at the Section for Cognitive Systems, DTU Compute


The course consists of five days (Mon-Friday) of lectures and exercises on key topics in machine learning. This years summer school will focus on several different advanced topics within machine learning centered around cognitive systems, which integrate information processing in human brains and computers for collaborative problem solving. This involves representations and processes involved in thinking and decision making such as prediction, planning, interpretation, and interaction with humans and other cognitive systems.

The course (2.5 ECTS point) is passed by handing in a small report on the topics covered in the course maybe evaluated on your own problems or data. The exercises cover both theoretical, technical programming, and application aspects. Specific machine learning application examples are used throughout the entire week.
