Seminar in AI

In this seminar, we will discuss how scientific publications come about, and then guide you in conducting and presenting a review of publications for a topic of your choice. The review will be presented in class, as well has handed in as a written report. The lecturers and topics will change every year.

For Winter 2020, Navid Rekabsaz and Jan Schlüter will provide potential topics from two fields:

  • machine learning for music and audio processing (such as music similarity estimation, auto-tagging, acoustic scene analysis)
  • natural language processing (such as sentiment analysis, translation, summarization)
