Resources

Last year's lecture notes are available, along with slides (4-up version) for those who want to look ahead. Most of the course is the same; the main changes are that variational inference has been removed, and the graphical lasso has been added.

Steffen Lauritzen taught an earlier incarnation of this course, and his notes might be useful.
