About the Course

The aim of the course is to provide the students with notions about various machine learning techniques. The course is subdivided into a lecture/excercises block and a project.

  • The lectures will include topics in image processing and analysis, unsupervised methods, and supervised methods. Each lecture will be followed by a practical hands-on exercise (e.g. the implementation in Python).
  • The topics of the projects will be distributed at the beginning of the semester. Each topic will be supervised by a different person. The projects are to be realized by couples. The programming language for the projects is to be decided in agreement with your supervisor.


  • Interested students should attend the introductory meeting to enlist in the course.
  • Students can only register through TUM Matching Platform themselves if the maximum number of participants hasn't been reached (please pay attention to the Deadlines).
  • A maximum number of participants: 20.


  • Good knowledge of machine learning methods and terminology: knowledge of the meaning of the words classification, regression, data-set, cross-validation ...
  • Strong knowledge of Python programming language
  • Background in image processing
