Feel free to coordinate reception hours with me via email.


There will be up to five exercises, involving theoretical and applied aspects of the material. Programming will be in Python and also using the TensorFlow library. Submission of all exercises is mandatory for passing the course.

You will also submit a research project. The project could either theory or application oriented, as long as it's sufficiently challenging and related to the material taught in the course.

We will allow group submissions for exercises and projects. The bound on group sizes will be decided on soon.

Final Grade is made out of:

  • 80% Project
  • 20% Exercises
