SGN-41007 Pattern Recognition and Machine Learning, 5 cr


For more details, see last year slides and videos at

The course substitutes earlier course SGN-41006 Signal Interpretation Methods. Only one of SGN-41006 and SGN-41007 can be accepted.
Kurssi korvaa aiemman kurssin SGN-41006 Signal Interpretation Methods. Vain toinen kursseista SGN-41006 ja SGN-41007 voidaan suorittaa.

Suitable for postgraduate studies.
