This course provides a unifying introduction to probabilistic modelling through the framework of graphical models, together with their associated learning and inference algorithms.
The course will be based on the book in preparation of Michael I. Jordan (UC Berkeley). Printed version of parts of the book (playing the role of the "polycopie") will be available from the Master's administrative assistant one or two weeks after the beginning of classes. We will notify you when they are ready for you to go and pick them up.
