Smart approaches to deal with complex CPS and intelligent robotics

Modul »CPS-Series A2. Decision Making using Expert Systems and Machine Learning«

To support the human in CPS and robotic environments, data derived from these systems can be used as decision support. This module covers two approaches: On the one hand it covers the modeling of expert systems, on the other hand it introduces to machine learning as a way to deal with the raising complexity in CPS and robotic environments.
