|Type||Lecture (2 SWS) + Exercise (2 SWS)|
|Audience||Master BIW, CIW, PSE, A&R and other|
Description of the main challenges that arise when dealing with large data sets and presentations of different possibilities for data management, data cleaning and outlier detection. Basic definitions in artificial intelligence and machine learning: training, validation, backpropagation, loss functions, error metrics. Description of different machine learning methods (logistic regression, clustering, neural networks, ...) and their classification into different categories such as supervised vs. unsupervised, regression vs. classification. Usage of tools to efficiently implement machine learning methods. Interpretation and analysis of the results and presentation of the potential of machine learning with examples of the chemical and biochemical engineering field.
The students can analyze the quality of data sets and perform simple operations to clean and prepare the data for the application of different machine learning techniques. The students are able to design and apply several AI techniques using efficient software tools and they are able to transfer this knowledge to solve practical problems. The students can recognize reliable results from the application of the presented machine learning techniques and critically evaluate their limitations.

Location & approach
The campus of TU Dortmund University is located close to interstate junction Dortmund West, where the Sauerlandlinie A 45 (Frankfurt-Dortmund) crosses the Ruhrschnellweg B 1 / A 40. The best interstate exit to take from A 45 is “Dortmund-Eichlinghofen” (closer to South Campus), and from B 1 / A 40 “Dortmund-Dorstfeld” (closer to North Campus). Signs for the university are located at both exits. Also, there is a new exit before you pass over the B 1-bridge leading into Dortmund.
To get from North Campus to South Campus by car, there is the connection via Vogelpothsweg/Baroper Straße. We recommend you leave your car on one of the parking lots at North Campus and use the H-Bahn (suspended monorail system), which conveniently connects the two campuses.
The Laboratory of Process Automation Systems is located at Building G2 on the North Campus. Find more information here.
TU Dortmund University has its own train station (“Dortmund Universität”). From there, suburban trains (S-Bahn) leave for Dortmund main station (“Dortmund Hauptbahnhof”) and Düsseldorf main station via the “Düsseldorf Airport Train Station” (take S-Bahn number 1, which leaves every 15 or 30 minutes). The university is easily reached from Bochum, Essen, Mülheim an der Ruhr and Duisburg.
You can also take the bus or subway train from Dortmund city to the university: From Dortmund main station, you can take any train bound for the Station “Stadtgarten”, usually lines U41, U45, U 47 and U49. At “Stadtgarten” you switch trains and get on line U42 towards “Hombruch”. Look out for the Station “An der Palmweide”. From the bus stop just across the road, busses bound for TU Dortmund University leave every ten minutes (445, 447 and 462). Another option is to take the subway routes U41, U45, U47 and U49 from Dortmund main station to the stop “Dortmund Kampstraße”. From there, take U43 or U44 to the stop “Dortmund Wittener Straße”. Switch to bus line 447 and get off at “Dortmund Universität S”.
The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dortmund University. There are two stations on North Campus. One (“Dortmund Universität S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the university directly with the city of Dortmund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Campus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Campus and offers a direct connection to South Campus every five minutes.
The Laboratory of Process Automation Systems is located at Building G2 on the North Campus. Find more information here. The building is within 5min walking distance of the H-Bahn Station "Dining Hall at North Campus".
The facilities of TU Dortmund University are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the university are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
