Description: 

With more and more data available for analysis and decision making - from web documents and digital media to sensory data from cameras, microphones, and ubiquitous devices - it becomes increasingly more important to understand how such large volumes of data can be analyzed by computers and used as the basis for new intelligent services, for decision making, and for making computers learn from experience. In companies around the world, from retail and banks all the way to Google, intelligent learning and analysis techniques are used to improve business decisions. Likewise, in science, important discoveries are made easier by automated learning methods, and games and other artifacts are being made adaptive with learning technology.

Within the intelligent systems track of the computer science Master's program, intelligent learning and analysis systems are one of the two major topics. This module (Machine Learning) is one of the two modules that are offered as an introduction for master's students to Intelligent Learning and Analysis Systems. The other is the Data Mining module taught in the summer semester. Both modules can be selected in either order, and you may choose to attend one or both of them. For a complete introduction to the topic, it is recommended to attend both modules.

In the Machine Learning module in particular, we will give a practically oriented introduction into the most popular methods from Machine Learning as a subfield of Intelligent Learning and Analysis Systems. We will get to know decision tree methods, instance-based learning, artificial neural networks, probabilistic learning, regression methods, kernel methods and support vector machines, and reinforcement learning for intelligent agents. This will be complemented with lectures on the most important approaches within computational learning theory. Within the exercises, it is possible to try out the most important methods and popular Machine Learning systems.

Learning from Non-Standard Data
Master: MA-INF 4303

This lecture introduces a selection of machine learning and data mining algorithms developed for graphs and relational structures.

Lecturer: Dr. Tamas Horvath

Contact: Dr. Tamas Horvath

Start date: 2019-10-16

Time:  Wed 14:15-15:45

Place: CP1-HSZ / Hörsaal 4

Exercise time:   Mi 16:15-17:45

Exercise place: CP1-HSZ / Hörsaal 4

Tutor: Maximilian Thiessen

Description: 

Traditional machine learning and data mining algorithms are resorted to data that can be represented by a single table of fixed width; the rows and the columns correspond to objects and object attributes, respectively. This assumption turns out to be quite restrictive in numerous practical applications involving structured data, such as graphs or relational structures. The lecture will cover the basics of learning and mining graph structured data and relational structures. We will present various algorithms for this setting and analyse their computational properties. We will also discuss some interesting applications in bioinformatics, computational chemistry, and natural language processing.
