The course is focused on comprehension of commonly used neural network architectures, suitable for various types of solved problems and processed data. Lectures cover the necessary theory, but are mainly focused on practical aspects of neural network design. For seminars, students will try to train the designed models of neural networks and further optimize them.
Aim of the course
Last update: Cejnar Pavel RNDr. Mgr. Ph.D. (14.06.2022)

Students will be able to:

(i) select the appropriate neural network architecture for the selected data type

(ii) design the neural network model and select the appropriate optimization algorithm for training

The student passes the practicals by submission of sufficient number of assignments (obtaining the appropriate number of points, including bonus points). The assignments are announced regularly during the whole semester. The student can choose which of the assignments to work on in order to obtain the necessary number of points. The written exam test consists of randomly selected questions from a set of previously announced exam questions. Classification in the exam can be improved or replaced by submission of an extended number of assignments (obtaining the extended number of points).
