This year, the class will be taught in English. Homeworks and project may be submitted in English or in French.

This course provides a unifying introduction to probabilistic modelling through the framework of graphical models,together with their associated learning and inference algorithms.

Classes will take place on Wednesdays from 9am to 12pm
at ENS Cachan, in **Amphi Curie**.
