Small courses

Yapay Öğrenmenin Matematiksel Temelleri, in Matematik Köyü, İzmir; October 2016, April 2017

In Matematik Köyü, Şirince, İzmir, we have taught twice this small course on the mathematical fundamentals of machine learning. Slides for the Monte Carlo section are here (in Turkish). All the presented material can be downloaded here.

Veri Bilim-Yapay Öğrenme Yaz Okulu, in Boğaziçi Üniversitesi, TETAM, İstanbul; Eylül 2017, Ağustos 2018

This course is in a very similar format with the ones in Matematik Köyü; however with more condensed lectures and richer application sessions. Slides for the Monte Carlo section are here (in Turkish). The github page for the course: here.
