August 16-20, 2010, DTU Informatics, Cognitive Systems
Theme: Probabilistic multivariate modeling and Bayesian inference
Faculty: Mikkel N. Schmidt, Ole Winther, Morten Mørup and Lars Kai Hansen
Place: Seminar Room 053 – IMM building 321
Hours: 09.30 – 17.00
The course consists of four days (Mon-Thursday) of morning lecture+exercises and afternoon exercises. The last day (Friday) will have exercises in the morning and student presentation in the afternoon. The course (2.5 ects point) is passed with either a presentation or a report. The running theme of course will be probabilistic multivariate modeling and Bayesian inference. The exercises covers both theoretical, technical programming and application aspects. It will be up to the students to decide on what aspects to focus on. Specific machine learning application examples are used throughout the entire week.
Day 1: Introduction to Bayesian inference
Teacher: Mikkel N. Schmidt
Day 2: Factor Modeling
Teacher: Ole Winther
Day 3: Mining Graphs by Relational Modeling
Teacher: Morten Mørup
Day 4: Manifold learning and visualization with kernels
Teacher: Lars Kai Hansen
