Probabilistic Machine Learning, Philipp Hennig. (2020)


In the "Corona Summer" of 2020, Prof. Dr. Philipp Hennig remotely taught the course on Probabilistic Machine Learning within the Tübingen International Master Programme on Machine Learning. The course consists of two ~90min lectures per week (26 lectures in total) plus a weekly practical / tutorial. Videos of all lectures are available on the youtube channel of the Tübingen Machine Learning Groups. The tutorials were taught by members of the Chair: Alexandra Gessner, Julia Grosse, Filip de Roos, Jonathan Wenger, Marius Hobbhahn, Nicholas Krämer, and Agustinus Kristiadi. The exercises and other material from these tutorials are available only to Tübingen students, via Ilias. The course is aimed at Master students of computer science and machine learning in particular. It provides an introduction to core concepts of machine learning from the probabilistic perspective (the lecture titles below give a rough overview of the contents). The course is designed to run alongside an analogous course on Statistical Machine Learning (taught, in the Summer of 2020, by Prof. Dr. Ulrike von Luxburg). The students who takes this course in Tübingen have also often taken an introductory math refresher, a course on deep learning, and a basic introduction to statistics. This page provides links to all videos, along with the slides for each lecture. For your convenience, each slide contains a link (the small "play"-icon at the bottom right) directly to a time-stamp in the video of the lecture.
