Probabilistic Graphical Models

Course code: PROBMACLNR

This course is intended for people interested in Bayesian networks and probabilistic programming. The theoretical part at the beginning of the course will lead to a practical example of topic modeling using Latent Dirichlet Allocation and its non-parametric extension including hyperparameter estimation. By completing this course, the participants should be able to design and implement their own simple Bayesian networks for various problems.
