The goal of this course is to equip students with state-of-the-art know-how regarding graph-based information engineering in communications, data science, machine learning, and biomedical engineering. This comprises the use of graphs both as modelling tool for large-scale datasets and as computational paradigm for devising efficient, possibly distributed algorithms. The concepts and methods discussed in the course are applicable to problems in communication and sensor networks, infrastructure networks, social networks, traffic networks, and biological networks. After successful completion of the course, students are able to apply methods from the areas of probabilistic graphical models and graph signal processing to practical engineering problems; this comprises the problem formulation, the analytical or numerical solution, and the qualitative and quantitative performance characterization.
