The University of Regensburg with its more than 20,000 students is an innovative and interdisciplinary oriented campus university with a broad range of academic disciplines and research activities for young people from Germany and abroad. At the Chair of Machine Learning at the Faculty of Informatics and Data Science, our main interest is the development and analysis of machine learning methods, especially with regard to their statistical properties. One of our main application areas of application is the analysis of high-dimensional and complex genetic data. Here we work closely with the Genetic Epidemiology Unit at the University of Regensburg. A central aspect of our work is the combination of application orientation and theoretical foundation. We conduct rigorous theoretical investigations of the respective methods, which creates a deep mathematical understanding. This understanding forms the basis for the targeted development of new machine learning algorithms.
