In this seminar, we will review and discuss Bayesian filtering theory with a particular focus on sequential learning methods such as Kalman filter and sequential Monte Carlo approaches. We will also investigate different applications of these methods to signal and natural language processing tasks.

Each of the participants will be assigned a paper or a book chapter (based on his/her preferences) that he/she needs to study and present to the rest of the group for a 50% of the grade. The remaining 50% is evaluated based on the final report following the seminar.
