This course is given is a one week course in August 2013 at The Technical University of Denmark. The course is a 5 ECTS course. It is open both for all PhD students and for everyone else via Open University. DTU students should sign up using CampusNet or by enquiery to Christina Horn Nexoe chne[a]imm.dtu.dk. For information on how to apply via Open University, see this link.
All lectures will be given at the DTU main campus, building 308, room 017. Participants will be offered lunch each day, and there will be coffee and refreshments available.
The course material consists of chapters from electronic textbooks and electronic papers. Most lectures will refer to the book "Elements of Statistical Learning" (ESL) by Hastie, Tibshirani and Friedman. This book is freely available from this link. References to other material will be given on CampusNet.
Lectures followed by exercises are in modules of half a day for each subject (8-12 o'clock and 13-17 o'clock). We will make arrangements for lunch from 12-13. The schedule is from last year - the content will be the same - but we may shuffle around with lecturers and modules.
