Seminar on Machine Learning by Prof. Erik Bjørnager Dam

Title: Beyond Apples and Oranges
Abstract: The presentation will illustrate and discuss the typical challenges in supervised machine learning while bridging the gap from Linear Discriminant Analysis to Deep Learning.  We will use examples from image analysis since this is straightforward to visualise, but the  methods are generally applicable.
