The course treats basic as well as modern concepts of statistical learning in terms of artificial neural networks (deep learning), with applications in statistical data analysis.
Topics treated include feedforward networks, regularization and optimization of networks with many layers, convolutional networks, recurrent networks and validation methods. In addition, mathematical interpretations of networks are given, such as nonlinear regression with different link functions for the outcome variable. The course includes some of the following topics; autoencoders, representation learning, deep generative methods, and information theoretic concepts of deep learning.
The course consists of two parts: theory and hand-in assignments.
Instruction is given in the form of lectures, exercise sessions and supervision.
The course is assessed through a written exam and home assignments.
