Practical Session

Concrete description of work assignment for students for the second one-hour part of the lecture. The work will consist of tasks connected with practical implementations of algorithms connected with the current topic (probably not the state-of-the-art algorithms mentioned in the first part) and with real data. Students can test the algorithms, evaluate them and possibly try some short adaptations for various subtasks.

Students can also be required to generate some results of their work and hand them in to prove completing the tasks.
