Under the following URL, you'll find a self-assessment test, which is designed to help decide whether this course is the right choice for you or not:
The test covers a selection of basics from linguistics, statistics, and machine learning, all of which are considered as prerequisites for the course (along with good programming skills).
The test is voluntary, fully anonymous, and will not affect admission to the course. It is only intended for one's own consideration. However, students that struggle with several questions are advised to expand their skills first and maybe rather register next year.
Required course achievement
There will be an individualized assessment test with questions on the basics mentioned above for the self-assessment test. The test needs to be passed in order to be allowed to take the exam.
The test will be conducted after a few weeks. It will take place offline, i.e., each registered student gets a test and needs to submit the solutions within a few days.
Details in the slides with general organizational information.
To pass the course, an oral exam has to be taken after the lecture time. The time periods for the exams are the second half of July and late September.
All details are found in the organizational slides on exam dates and application.
