1. Was your mathematical background sufficient to follow?

8 svarande

mostly»5 62%
partly»2 25%
barely»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 2.12

- I like math but statistics and probability is sadly not my strong side... Getting there though.» (partly)

2. Your workload in this course

8 svarande

low, there is room for more»0 0%
appropriate»5 62%
high, still OK»3 37%
too high»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 2.37

- Maybe just a tad bit on the high end.» (appropriate)
- since i was doing my thesis at the same time.» (appropriate)
- The project should have started earlier, posed a too high workload at the end.» (high, still OK)
- I was sick one week and had a total of 3.25 courses this quarter. But I bet it would have been appropriate if I hadn"t been sick.» (high, still OK)

3. Course goals are:

4. Did the course reach the goals?

partly»0 0%
barely»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 1.75

- I have been sick and lagging behind all the time so...» (mostly)

5. Examination form (exercises plus summary or small project):

8 svarande

keep it»5 62%
change it (please comment)»3 37%

Genomsnitt: 1.37

- I would like the summary to be more of a Q&A type of thing. I find it quite hard to write a free format summary.» (keep it)
- Good to have an option to select, either summary or small project» (keep it)
- It is nice with a variety of examination forms. By this time everybody has done a lot of exams and the industry doesn"t do exams (either as a PhD or engineer), it is project oriented. Good also with the excercises to keep people up to date.» (keep it)
- Enables each student to show if he/she understands the topics, and also gives flexibility for the student to chose final project (theory or practical).» (keep it)
- Maybe more time given to the project, only ~2 weeks felt a bit short.» (change it (please comment))
- It would be good if there was more material to make it easier to start a project. Otherwise, there should be some practical part were we could do some matlab- or C-program and implement different learners. To use almost ready programs that only need small amount of code to function, like many other courses do it, would be nice.» (change it (please comment))
- Let project start earlier, or skip project.» (change it (please comment))

6. To what extent has the teaching been of help for your studying?

8 svarande

great extent»0 0%
large extent»5 62%
some extent»3 37%
small extent»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 2.37

- It would be very nice to have some sort of exercise sessions, where a tutor went through various exercises (from the book maybe) on the black board.» (some extent)
- I was sick then everything in this quarter broke.» (some extent)

7. Course materials:

8 svarande

very good»0 0%
good»6 75%
fair»2 25%
poor»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 2.25

- It will be good is some more materials are given for reference.» (good)
- The course book did feel a bit old. Where were the answers to the exercises in the book?? (I used a pdf-copy of the book so I might have missed out on them?)» (fair)
- I have read 5 pages in it so far.» (fair)

8. The treatment of course subjects was (in general)

8 svarande

superficial»0 0%
appropriate»7 87%
too deep and detailed»1 12%

Genomsnitt: 2.12

- A lot of details, could have been less. (Maybe that will have impact on content though...)» (too deep and detailed)

9. Did you read additional materials on your own?

8 svarande

yes, a significant amount»1 12%
a little»6 75%
no»1 12%

Genomsnitt: 2

- Because ANN in the course book doesn"t give much information to get a brief knowledge on the subject.» (a little)

10. How were the opportunities for asking questions and getting help?

8 svarande

I did not seek help»0 0%
very good»4 50%
good»3 37%
fair»1 12%
poor»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 2.62

- I would like to have exercise sessions where one could ask a tutor about various exercises and the like (and possibly in Swedish).» (fair)

11. Are the course contents relevant for your further studies and professional plans?

8 svarande

yes»5 62%
somewhat»3 37%
maybe not so much (still interesting)»0 0%
rather no»0 0%

Genomsnitt: 1.37

12. Which subjects are most difficult?

8 svarande

(på denna fråga var det möjligt att välja flera svarsalternativ)

concept learning framework»0 0%
decision tree learning»0 0%
concept representation»1 12%
neural network training»2 25%
Bayesian learning»5 62%
PAC learning»1 12%

- I feel like these are quite abstract and it would be nice to go through some exercises together with a tutor in a exercise session.» (neural network training, Bayesian learning)
- I dont really have a grasp of it. I have been away a lot.» ()

13. Schedule of course subjects and requirements during the study period:

8 svarande

keep it»7 87%
change it (please comment)»1 12%

Genomsnitt: 1.12

- Maybe make the lecture notes available before the lectures?» (keep it)
- Maybe a final report and a project is better. Then people can plan their time on their own.» (keep it)
- Maybe change the deadline for the project till the last sunday of the exam week, as the date/time perhaps does not matter too much for the teacher. Although setting a later date, usually means the students will hand in the project later than the already late date. :)» (change it (please comment))

14. The course is about mathematical foundations of machine learning. Nevertheless: Would you wish more links to the applications?

8 svarande

no, OK as it is»1 12%
yes»7 87%

Genomsnitt: 1.87

- I think it would help with the morale if one could see how the mathematical concepts actually could be used.» (yes)
- That is interesting to have related software links. Trying out the techniques without having to implement everything yourself.» (yes)
- Maybe links to frameworks would be useful.» (yes)
