­­­Kick-off event 18th April, 4:00 pm in G1.E15/16


This seminar consists of semester-long research projects. The projects span topics from core machine learning research, such as generative models, uncertainty quantification, and interpretability; as well as applications in the biomedical and health sciences, such as epidemiological N-of-1 trials, genetics, and medical imaging. Students are expected to work closely with their individual supervisors (PhD students and PostDocs at the Digital Health - Machine Learning group), make substantial progress on their task, and give a presentation at the end of the semester. Especially successful projects may additionally lead to the publication of a scientific paper.

Students are required to have good coding skills (language will depend on the topic, but mostly Python and R) and have at least a basic understanding of modern machine learning, e.g. through the Deep Learning lecture at HPI or similar online courses.

Precise requirements differ between the different research projects. In all cases, basic skills in machine learning/deep learning and/or statistics are highly preferred. Ambitious students may take this seminar in parallel with the Introduction to Deep Learning course.

Students will work on a project for the course, and the seminar will end with a short presentation and/or a short written report. Details to follow.
