Learning Outcome:After successfully completing the module, students will be acquainted with basic principles and main techniques of mathematical methods that are useful in artificial intelligence and machine learning. They understand the inner workings of the techniques. They are able to apply the presented methods.
Contents:In the lectures the theory and methods are presented. The knowledge about the material is deepened in self-organised studies and practized in the tutorial at hand of homework problems.

Major topics are:
  • important concepts in linear algebra, e.g. matrix factorization
  • analytic geometry, e.g. projection mappings
  • linear regression
  • matrix factorization, e.g. Cholesky decomposition
  • vector calculus and its use in optimization, e.g. in gradient descent
  • probability and distributions, e.g. Bayes’ theorem
  • dimensionality reduction, e.g. by principal component analysis
  • selected applications in artificial intelligence
