2022/23

The course, optional for the Master degree in computer engineering, is offered in the I semester of the II year. The course is taught in English. The course addresses the core issues in modern Artificial intelligence and machine learning, with a special focus on advanced algorithms and theory of shallow and deep machine learning with applications in Computer Vision and Natural Language Processing. Lab activities will equip students with first-hand experience on modern optimization methods and programming framework most used in advanced research and companies as of today, and to have first hand experiences on the properties of such algorithms on specific case studies.

- paper presentation during the course: the students are asked to read, present and discuss a recent research paper
- final group (3 students) project. It consists in reproducing and extending a current state of the art deep learning method. The students will elaborate a pdf report of about 8 pages in ieee paper format and will present the work in a 15 minutes talk during the oral exam.
- oral exam on project presentation (group) and on the theory topics presented during lectures (individual questions).

Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilitą o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unitą Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione pił idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.

In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
