This module aims at providing insights into the most foundational architectures of deep learning algorithms within both supervised and unsupervised learning, thus building a strong basis for further exploration of more specific and cutting-edge techniques. Real-world problems that are approached with the techniques covered in this module include the development of advanced recommender systems (marketing), computer vision models (healthcare, economics), powerful unsupervised pattern recognition systems (fraud detection or credit default prediction in finance) and sequence modelling for (attempts of) stock market index prediction.
Upon completion, students will acquire theoretical and practical knowledge, enabling them to understand and apply central techniques and concepts of deep learning approaches as well as the fundamentals of artificial intelligence for analytics. They will be able to select and apply appropriate methods to real-world problems and critically reflect on them.
