Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning: Advanced Applications of Neural Networks and Deep Learning

when 16 July 2023 - 5 August 2023
language English
duration 3 weeks
credits 7.5 EC
fee GBP 3725

In our age of burgeoning smart technology and automation we are already seeing the transformative potential of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in fields as diverse as finance, medicine, and manufacturing.

In this course students who are already familiar with the key theoretical foundations of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will dive deeper into the exciting capabilities of this area of research and its applications in three streams. First, you will explore Generative Deep Learning and, working with the MNIST and CIFAR-10 datasets, train networks to produce new synthetic samples which appear to belong to the datasets. Secondly, you will learn to design and train Graph Neural Networks, a class of deep learning methods designed to be applied to structured data on irregular grids, such as social network data. Finally, you will look at applications of Reinforcement Learning, a method utilised when you do not have data, but do have access to the data generation process, such as when training a robot to interact with its environment and achieve an objective. This course provides students with an introduction to these advanced topics of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and provides a solid foundation for future advanced study in the field.
