Neural Networks
Master in Applied Artificial Intelligence (Plan: 475 - Estudio: 378)

Coordinating teacher: MARTÍNEZ OLMOS, PABLO

Department assigned to the subject: Signal and Communications Theory Department

Type: Electives
ECTS Credits: 3.0 ECTS


Requirements (Subjects that are assumed to be known)
The students are expected to have basic knowledge of - Calculus - Programming skills - Numerical optimization
The fundamental objective is that the student learns to design decision machines based on neural networks for basic learning problems in tabular and multimedia data, paying special attention to regularization and validation techniques. Likewise, the student will learn to use automatic differentiation software packages for model training and experimental simulation.
