July 25th: No cheatsheets, calculators or other assistances are allowed in the exam.


1. Attendance to the lecture is open for all.

2. If your pursuing degree is not in Computer Science and you want to take the exam, you should ask the administrative staff responsible for your degree whether that is possible (it most probably is).

3. If you are a LMU student and you want to take the exam, you should ask the administrative staff responsible for your degree whether that is possible (it most probably is).

4. There is no way to get extra points for your final grade, such as bonus exercises, etc.

In this lecture, the students will be introduced into the most frequently used machine learning methods in computer vision and robotics applications. The major aim of the lecture is to obtain a broad overview of existing methods, and to understand their motivations and main ideas in the context of computer vision and pattern recognition.

Note that the lecture has a new module number now. In earlier semesters it was IN3200, now it is IN2357. The content is however (almost) the same. For material from previous semesters, please refer to, e.g.: WS2017
