Machine Learning and Data Mining

[go to overview]

Winter Term 2020 / 2021

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 clustering and classification.

Excited to participate? Then, you need to:

  1. Register to the lecture in KLIPS. Mandatory for all students who want to participate.
  2. Add yourself into a group for working on mandatory assignments in Teams until 11th November. Applies only for those students who take the course the first time or did not gather the exam admission in the last winter term.
  3. Register for the course in OLAT. You will need a passcode for the registration in OLAT. We will send you this passcode via E-Mail before the first lecture. The E-Mails will be sent to all students who have registered for the lecture in Klips, see 1.

Please use the forum on the OLAT platform for general questions about the course. You may send E-Mails only for urgent issues or when it is about private data.

Info: Exam admissions from the Machine Learning and Data Mining course of the winter term 2019/2020 are still valid, regardless whether one participated in an exam. Thus, students who attended the course one year ago and scored at least 60% of the points in the assignments must not register for an assignment group again.

First exam: 3rd March 2021
Second exam: 14th April 2021

Assignments

Assignments will be provided along with the progress of the lectures.

Please form groups of 3 to 4 people to work on the assignments here, until 11th of November! 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 100 points, you need in total at minimum 600 points in sum over all assignments to participate in the exam.
