An Introduction to Probabilistic Machine Learning

Probabilistic machine learning has gained a lot of practical relevance over the past 15 years as it is highly data-efficient, allows practitioners to easily incorporate domain expertise and, due to the recent advances in efficient approximate inference, is highly scalable. Moreover, it has close relations to causal inference which is one of the key methods for measuring cause-effect relationship of machine learning models and explainable artificial intelligence. This openHPI course will introduce all recent developments in probabilistic modeling and inference. It will cover both the theoretical as well as practical and computational aspects of probabilistic machine learning.

Probabilistic machine learning has gained a lot of practical relevance over the past 15 years as it is highly data-efficient, allows practitioners to easily incorporate domain expertise and, due to the recent advances in efficient approximate inference, is highly scalable. Moreover, it has close relations to causal inference which is one of the key methods for measuring cause-effect relationship of machine learning models and explainable artificial intelligence. This openHPI course will introduce all recent developments in probabilistic modeling and inference. It will cover both the theoretical as well as practical and computational aspects of probabilistic machine learning.

This course requires some Python and C/C++ programming; we will use the Collab feature of openHPI. We will also assume that the participants have a solid understanding of analysis and calculus.

LITERATURE

In this course, we will make use of the following four textbooks:
1. Bishop, C. M. (2006). Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning. Springer.
2. Koller, D., and N. Friedman. (2009). Probabilistic Graphical Models: Principles and Techniques. MIT Press.
3. Murphy, K. P. (2012). Machine Learning: A Probabilistic Perspective. MIT Press.
4. Ross, S. (2021). Introduction to Probability and Statistics for Engineers and Scientists. Academic Press.

    Prof. Dr. Ralf Herbrich

    Prof. Dr. Ralf Herbrich is Full Professor at University of Potsdam and Head of the Chair for Artificial Intelligence and Sustainability at the Hasso Plattner Institute Potsdam. He has studied at Technical University of Berlin both for a Diploma degree in Computer Science (with focus on Computer Graphics and Artificial Intelligence (AI)) in 1997 and a PhD degree in Theoretical Statistics in 2000, respectively. Prof. Dr. Ralf Herbrich worked in both basic and applied science at Microsoft, Facebook, Amazon, and Zalando.

    He does not accept existing scientific boundaries and thinks that the largest breakthroughs will be made at the intersection of existing disciplines. His research interests include approximate computing, Bayesian inference and decision making, game theory, information retrieval, natural language processing, computer vision, distributed systems, machine learning theory and knowledge representation and reasoning. Prof. Dr. Ralf Herbrich has published over 80 peer reviewed conference and journal papers in these fields.
