Please notice: There are no prerequisites for Master of Computer Science students for this module in Winter 2015.
The lecture is organized as 2hrs lecture plus 2 hrs exercises per week in the time from Tuesday 27 Oct 2015 to Fr 12 Feb 2016.
The lecture starts on:Monday, 19 Oct 2015, 10 o'clock, Lecture Hall LBH, III.03a .

This lecture is part of the intelligent systems track of the master programme "Computer Science".

Content of the Lecture:

The lecture gives an overview over the most important technical neural networks and neural paradigms.

The following topics will be explained in detail: Perceptron, multi-layer perceptron (MLP), radial-basis function nets (RBF), Hopfield nets, self organizing feature maps (SOMS, Kohonen), adaptive resonance theory (ART), learning vector quantization, recurrent networks, back-propagation of error, reinforcement learning, Q-learning, support vector machines (SVM), Neocognitron.

In addition exemplary applications of neural nets will be presented and discussed: function approximation, prediction, quality control, image processing, speech processing, action planning, control of technical processes and robots.
Implementation of neural networks in hardware and software: tools, simulators, analog and digital neural hardware.

Exercises on a voluntary basis:

Wer offer exercises (on a voluntary basis) to intensify the work with the research topics presented in the lecture. You will get weekly paper-and-pencil assignments that are designed to be worked on in two person groups and completed within one week. Your results of the assignments will be presented and discussed during the exercise group. The paper and pencil assignments are accompanied by small programming tasks to be completed using individually implemented programms and stat of the art simulation tools.

participation is voluntary but highly recommended to prepare for the written exam (graded) for this module.
