The purpose of this seminar is to help you to broaden your expertise in Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI). Therefore, well will introduce to you selected ML&AI technologies and tools relevant for your chosen seminar projects. You will acquire hands-on experience with these tools and apply them to real-world scenarios. We will equip you with the required ML&AI expertise and provide you access to materials for your chosen projects. We expect from you to deep dive in the required ML/AI technology, to learn about related work, to design and apply your own ML/AI approach, and to evaluate your approach and compare it to results from related work.   

You will select your preferred project topic from a list of topics presented in the kick-off lecture. We will coach you throughout the whole semester with regards to the chosen project. Furthermore, we will support you to improve your research and presentation skills. You will share your results in intermediate and final presentations together with all participants. You will document your final results in a scientific way.
