Data Science and Artificial Intelligence

Computational Intelligence 2

Integrated course, 10.00 ECTS


Course content

Students acquire in-depth knowledge of artificial neural networks, evolutionary methods, swarm intelligence, artificial immune systems, fuzzy systems and associated probability techniques with regard to detailed mathematical foundations and principles and the algorithms derived from them. The associated transformation of these algorithms to computer-aided tools determines the methodological competence of the students. They are able to design and execute CI experiments holistically and on demand, and students can choose the appropriate process models and tools. Students are able to evaluate and interpret results of a CI experiment based on clearly defined criteria.

Learning outcomes
