About the Course

The course discusses learning and inference from data as a type of algorithmic problems. After introducing the basic notion and stressing the role of model assumptions we go through some of the most common approaches to algorithmic learning. Critical evaluation of learning algorithms and their outcomes is as important as the technical side. Applications and related fields include artificial intelligence, pattern recognition, and data mining, e.g. in commerce and in bioinformatics.
