After successful completion of this course the student has:
This course is especially meant for candidates, missing specific knowledge and certain mathematics skills in their pre-master education.
- an understanding of the basic mathematics that is needed to follow the ITech master courses
- insight in the scope and breadth of the mathematical tools needed for artificial intelligence and machine learning
- insight in the mathematical basics of formal languages and grammars for both artificial languages as well as natural language
- proper skills in solving practical (mathematical) problems in the field of programming and machine learning
This course provides an introduction to mathematical topics that are of particular importance to Interaction Technology. It starts with basic calculus and analysis and advances onto topics like differential equations, linear algebra, set theory and logic. Furthermore, it gives an introduction to formal languages, grammars and machine learning. For some parts students may join existing bachelor modules, on other topics students will work largely by themselves. However, there will a number of assignments and tutorials that will guide the candidates through this theory.
