Skills to be acquired in this module
Probabilistic models are generated with special tools (e.g. BUGS, JAGS, STAN) or domain specific programming languages (WebPPL, PyMC3, … , etc.). If they mimic cognitive processes of humans (e.g. pilots, drivers) or animals they could be used as cooperative assistance systems in technical or financial systems like cars, robots, or recommenders. In this part of the seminar we read, present, and discuss recent research papers.

Professional competence:
The students:
  • learn to connect problem- with model classes to come up with practical solutions

Methodological competence
The students:
  • acquire advanced skills in the design, implementation, and identification of probabilistic models with Bayesian methods
  • acquire knowledge about alternative machine learning methods

Social competence
The students:
  • learn to present and discuss probabilistic theories, methods, and models

The students:
  • reflect and evaluate chances and limitations of probabilistic approaches
  • learn to deliberate on machine-learning alternatives
Module contents
Theories, methods, and examples of Bayesian models with practical applications
