Course description and aims

This course covers the mathematical fundamentals of pattern recognition with generative models.

Student learning outcomes

At the end of the course, students will be able to explain the basic concept of the pattern recognition with generative models, understand mathematics to describe the generative models, and implement the models explained in the lecture.

Keywords

Pattern recognition, Statistical machine learning, Generative models, Maximum likelihood estimation, Bayesian inference

Competencies that will be developed

Intercultural skills Communication skills Specialist skills Critical thinking skills Practical and/or problem-solving skills

Class flow

Before coming to class, students should read the course schedule and check what topics will be covered. Required learning should be completed
outside of the classroom for preparation and review purposes.
