AG 3: Teaching
The course is the second part of a two semester course on Statistical Learning. The first part (WS 2004/2005) concentrated on chapters 1-10 of the book The Elements of Statistical Learning, Springer 2001, this follow up course consists of two parts. The first part will continue with chapters 11-14 of the book. The second part will deal with methods of Statistical Learning applied to problems in Bioinformatics. There will be two hours of lecture per week and one hour of tutorial (V2/Ü1).
This course covers a subject that is relevant for computer scientists in general as well as for other scientists involved in data analysis and modeling. It is not limited to the field of computational biology.
