Block-Seminar "Classical Topics in Machine Learning"

The Classical Topics Seminar is an optional course in the modules "Cognitive Algorithms" and "Machine Learning 1-X".

In the general case, it is not possible to take the Hot Topics Seminar as a standalone course. There are possible exceptions to this (e.g. it complements another ML or related course you are taking in parallel). In that case, a special request needs to be made.
