Lecturing at KTH Royal Institute of Technology

  • Artificial Intelligence, Master-level course (2012, 2013, 2014, 2015)
  • Reinforcement Learning, PhD.-level course (2017, 2018)

Artificial Intelligence

The course covers problem solving with search algorithms, heuristics and games, knowledge representation (logic), representing uncertain knowledge and reasoning (Bayesian networks), decision and utility theory, communication between agents, and models for probabilistic language processing. Further are covered examples of using artificial intelligence methods in computer vision, robotics, etc will be given.

Reinforcement Learning

This course is about Reinforcement Learning (RL), the third type of learning besides Supervised Learning and Unsupervised Learning. In RL, the paradigm is to try out different options and learn from feedback which options are best to reach a goal. RL has its roots both in biologically and psychologically inspired learning approaches and in control. The course provides a short and basic introduction to classical RL and advanced RL topics. Each lecture comes with a practical task.

For this course, I received funding from the PhD. student council of the School of Computer Science and Communication at KTH.
