# 2017/18 Seminar Machine Learning for Physicists, by Florian Marquardt

### From Institute for Theoretical Physics II / University of Erlangen-Nuremberg

This seminar is a follow-up to the lecture of the summer term (see lecture homepage).

Students will be asked to present modern research articles on machine learning, especially those that address the application of machine learning techniques to questions in physics (and in the natural sciences in general).

- Tentative schedule: Mondays, 18:00-20:00 (I'm choosing this slot such that a maximum number of students may participate if they like to)
- First meeting: Monday, October 23.
- Where: Lecture hall F
- Also look for the studon-group
- Lecturer/Advisor: Florian.Marquardt@fau.de
