Contents

  • Biological neural networks
  • Supervised learning procedures
  • Unsupervised learning procedures
  • Theoretical Analysis of Neural Networks
  • Self-organization and emergence
  • Experiment design and analysis
  • Capabilities and limits of the models

Qualification Goals

The students shall

  • have an insight into the theory of neural networks and an overview of the different architectures, chances and limitations of artificial neural networks,
  • in addition to the common supervised learning networks, acquire knowledge of unsupervised learning neural networks and the paradigm of self-organization and emergence,
  • be able to design a data-driven solution for artificial neural networks based on a concrete problem using predefined program libraries,
  • practice scientific working methods (recognizing, formulating, solving problems, training the ability to abstract),
  • practice oral communication skills in the exercises by practicing free speech in front of an audience.

Prerequisites

Translation is missing. Here is the German original:

Keine. Empfohlen werden die Kompetenzen, die in den Basismodulen zur Informatik vermittelt werden.
