Mar 29, 2018 | Uploaded slides on Variational Inference and Learning. |

Mar 26, 2018 | Uploaded slides on Sampling and Monte Carlo Integration. |

Mar 23, 2018 | The answers to Tutorial 7 are online. |

Mar 22, 2018 | Uploaded slides on Intractable Likelihood Functions and on Estimating Unnormalised Models by Score Matching. |

Mar 22, 2018 | Added the book “Independent Component Analysis” to the further resources and clarified that in our definition of sub/super-Gaussian pdfs, we assume that the variables have zero mean (slides 22 and 23 of Factor Analysis and Independent Component Analysis). |

Mar 21, 2018 | Tutorial 8 is ready. |

Mar 20, 2018 | Fixed typo/bug on slide 11 of Factor Analysis and Independent Component Analysis regarding orthonormal matrices. It should have been “square” instead of “symmetric”. This is now corrected. |

Mar 19, 2018 | Corrected error on slides 43 and 44 of Basics of Model-Based Learning. We should have taken the transformation that maps to , and not the transformation : maps to values between and 0, which would still result in a constrained optimisation problem. Also corrected the missing square root in the equation for the partition function of a Gaussian (slide 27). |

Mar 17, 2018 | The answers to Tutorial 6 are online. |

Mar 15, 2018 | Uploaded slides on Factor Analysis and Independent Component Analysis. |

Feb 14, 2018 | In tutorial 2, the solution to Exercise 4 on the restricted Boltzmann machine, part (c) was misleading at the very end of the document, around Eq (S.21). Please find here an amended version of the solutions. |
