Ziele (*)Python (, one of the most commonly used programming languages in machine learning and AI, is a powerful and versatile programming language that allows for fast prototyping in simple scripts up to complex large-scale software development. This lecture shall provide an introduction to Python. It will start with the basics of programming and continue on to solving realistic tasks. After completing the course, students will be able to use Python in order to implement basic scientific applications in the field machine learning. Lecture and lecture materials are partly interactively.
