This seminar in the course overview


(Probabilistic Machine Learning)

Artificial intellegence includes "machine learning" as well as "deep learning" as exciting special branches which are heavily used these days in many places like google, Apple, Amazon. This topic heavily uses tools from probability theory and statistics and has found surprising applications like hand-written digits recognition, face recognition and speech recognition. In this seminar we want to discuss the mathematical foundation, see some applications and discuss what can be currently achieved by machine learning and what eludes us at present. 


(Financial Mathematics)
