Contents of teaching:
  • Agents, Mechanisms, and Collaboration: Intelligent agents and artificial intelligence / Game theory and social choice / Mechanism design, algorithmic mechanism design / Agent collaboration, rules of encounter / Continuous Space / Epistemic logic / Knowledge and seeing / Knowledge and time / Dynamic epistemic logic / Knowledge-based programs
  • Perception (Language and Vision): Information retrieval and web-mining agents / Probabilistic dimension reduction, latent content descriptions, topic models, LDA, LDA-HMM / Representation learning for sequential structures, embedding spaces, word2vec, CBOW, skip-gram, hierarchical softmax, negative sampling / Language models (1d-CNNs. RNNs, LSTMs, ELMo, Transformers, BERT, GPT-3/OPT, and beyond), Natural language inference and query answering / Computer Vision (2D-CNNs, Deep Architectures: AlexNet, ResNet) /Combining language and vision (CLIP (OpenAI) / LIT (Google) / data2vec (Facebook) / Flamingo (DeepMind), DALL-E and beyond) /Knowledge graph embedding with GNNs, combining embedding-based KG completion with probabilistic graphical models (ExpressGNN, pLogicNet), MLN inference and learning based on embedded knowledge graphs, GMNNs)
  • Planning, Causality, and Reinforcement Learning: Planning and acting with deterministic models, temporal models, nondeterministic models, probabilistic models / Standard decision making / Advanced decision making and reinforcement learning / Causal dependencies / Intervention / Instrumental variables / Counterfactuals / Causal planning / Causal reinforcement learning
  • In the project lab students use the usual (open source) data science related programming languages and tools in order to transfer the abstractions, concepts and results taught in the lecture into concrete software models and artefacts to be applied on big data.
  • The students can enumerate central ideas, define the relevant concepts and explain the functioning of algorithms with help of application scenarios for all the items listed in contents of teaching.
