Block-Seminar "Big Data & Scalable Machine Learning"

The Big Data & Scalable Machine Learning Seminar is an optional course in the module "Machine Learning 1-X" and is worth 3 LP (3 ECTS credits).

In the general case, it is not possible to take the 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.
