This is the website for the working group Computational Statistics at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich.
Prof. Dr. Bernd Bischl is head of the working group since summer 2015.
Our research areas of interest are
- deep learning
- interpretable machine learning
- automated machine learning
- predictive modelling, especially non-linear classification and regression
- ensemble techniques
- statistical / machine learning
- statistical computing and computational statistics
- model- and variable selection
- expensive black-box optimization
- bayesian optimization
- statistical software development
The group also organizes the Münchner R Kurse, which are training courses on statistics, data science and programming in R.

- 2019-01-17: The Munich Center for Machine Learning is being launched.
Prof. Dr. Bernd Bischl, Prof. Dr. Thomas Seidl and Prof. Dr. Daniel Cremers are launching the Munich Center for Machine Learning, a co-operation between the Ludwig-Maximilians-University Munich (LMU) and the Technical University Munich (TUM).
Machine Learning (ML) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) have become scientific key technologies. Prof. Dr. Bernd Bischl is one of the leading members of the newly established research center Munich Center for Machine Learning (MCML). Funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, the center will bundle excellent ML research, connect with industry and educate students.
The Munich Center for Machine Learning is lead jointly by Prof. Dr. Thomas Seidl and Prof. Dr. Bernd Bischl (on the LMU side) and Prof. Dr. Daniel Cremers (for TUM). Read More
