In our age of burgeoning smart technology and automation we are already seeing the transformative potential of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning in fields as diverse as finance, medicine, and manufacturing.
In this course students who are already familiar with the key theoretical foundations of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning will dive deeper into the exciting capabilities of this area of research and its applications in three streams. First, you will explore Generative Deep Learning and, working with the MNIST and CIFAR-10 datasets, train networks to produce new synthetic samples which appear to belong to the datasets. Secondly, you will learn to design and train Graph Neural Networks, a class of deep learning methods designed to be applied to structured data on irregular grids, such as social network data. Finally, you will look at applications of Reinforcement Learning, a method utilised when you do not have data, but do have access to the data generation process, such as when training a robot to interact with its environment and achieve an objective. This course provides students with an introduction to these advanced topics of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, and provides a solid foundation for future advanced study in the field.

You will eat breakfast each day in the Dining Hall, and lunch and dinner will also be provided in College on each of your teaching days. On the final evening of the course there is a Graduation Formal Hall, when students dress up in their finest outfits for a special banquet served in the Dining Hall.
LMH Summer Programmes are designed and delivered by experienced academics and experts from Lady Margaret Hall and across the University of Oxford, and are taught using the Oxford teaching model, which emphasises personalised small-group learning. Each week you will take part in a range of class types, including lectures, seminars, and tutorials.
The academic programme is the fundamental core of an LMH Summer Programme, and you will have a busy schedule of lectures, seminars, tutorials, and independent study time. Outside of your study time, however, our Resident Advisers are here to help you get to know other students, explore the city, and have an authentic experience of life as a student at an Oxford college.
