AIML 429: Probabilistic Machine Learning.

Lectures and tutorials in T1, 2024:

  • Tuesdays and Thursdays, 10am in Murphy LT102, Kelburn
(Videos available via "Nuku" on left side-bar, but I'd prefer you show up in class)
  • Tutorials are Tuesdays from 4pm in Kirk204

Because the recordings were very poor (both sound and vision) before the room got "fixed", here are the corresponding lectures (first 3 weeks) as they were presented in 2023:

Marcus's Office Hours are Tuesdays from 3-4pm , in CO337 (i.e. just prior to Tutorial -- if it's appropriate, consider asking your question in the tut so that others can hear the answer too). In-person is best. There's also zoom by arrangement.
