Machine Learning and Data Mining[go to overview]
Winter Terms 2019 / 2020
The course “Machine Learning and Data Mining (MLDM)” covers the fundamentals and basics of machine learning and data mining. The course provides an overview of a variety of MLDM topics and related areas such as optimization and deep learning. Excited to participate? Then, you need to:
- Register to the lecture in Klips
- Register to one tutorial in Klips
- Add yourself into a group for working on mandatory assignments here until 25th October
When you are newly enrolled and have not yet access to the infrastructure of our University, you may still take part in the course. You must perform the following steps until 25th of October:
- Come up with groups of four students. If your group has less than four students, we will merge you with other students without further notice.
- Send one (!) email per group (!) to firstname.lastname@example.org with the title “MLDM GROUP REGISTRATION” and the full names (as provided at enrollment) + current email address of each team member.
- We will tell you your group name for submission and the further process of submission then.
For inter-student communication, please use the newsgroup infko-mldm.
Master and Bachelor students in:
- Web Science
- Computer Science
- Computational Visualistics
- Business Informatics

- Where: M 001
- Duration: 90 minutes
- Registration (Klips): Open from December 30 to February 5 (Do Not miss the deadline!)

Important note: You must have gathered at least 60% of the points across the assignments of this semester or have failed the exam in the last year to be allowed to participate in the exam. Admissions from recent years are not valid.
Further note: We allow scientific calculators, but no programmable or graphical calculators in the exam.
- Lecturer: Dr. Zeyd Boukhers
- Wednesdays, 08:00 - 10:00 in M 001
- Consultation: Mondays at 09:00 in B114 or by appointment (email@example.com)
- Instructors: Akram Sadat Hosseini, Raphael Menges and Qusai Ramadan
- Thursdays, 14:00 - 16:00, M 001
- Thursdays, 16:00 - 18:00, M 001
- You don't need to come to both slots for the tutorial. We will cover the same material on both.
Please form groups of four people to work on the assignments here, until 25th of October! The assignments are graded before the next tutorial and it is mandatory to reach 60% of the points in total over all assignments to be allowed to participate in the exam. E.g., if there are 10 assignments each 10 points, you need in total at minimum 60 points in sum over all assignments to participate in the exam.
Slides, lecture recordings and additional material will be provided along with the progress of the lecture. Below, the table of dates and topics is subject to changes.
