I am a Ph.D. candidate in High Energy Physics and my research involves numerical simulations and data analysis. I am interested to learn Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning from the basics so that I could implement the same in my research. Due to the huge popularity of AI & ML one could easily find a large number of articles on the internet on the topic, but it seems to me that a search for a proper course (that would teach the basics at the beginner level) is nearly impossible for me.

It would be helpful if someone suggest me an introductory course (preferably video lecture) on 'machine learning' with the goal of applying the concepts to simulations of black hole environments.

  • $\begingroup$ Hello. Please, reformulate the question so that it's not too broad. If you're looking for courses (with video lessons) on a specific subject (e.g. "introduction to machine learning"), then that should be your specific question. Asking for resources on AI and ML is too broad (because there are many types of resources, many subjects in AI and ML, etc.), so this post could be closed as such. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @nbro Thanks for the suggestion. I had reformulated the question. My interest is on implementation of AI in numerical simulations of black hole environments that include hydrodynamics around black holes. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Ok, thanks for trying to improve this post. I would also suggest that you put your specific question in the title. Right now, you still have a quite broad title and you still left "any introductory course, lecture notes or lecture videos on 'machine learning' suitable for the beginners" in your post, so the post is still a bit broad. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ It may be a good idea to reformulate your question as something like "Which resources (in particular, courses with video lessons) could I use to study machine learning for the ultimate purpose of applying ML to simulations of black holes" (if this is your question, I don't know for sure) $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ In addition to that, this type of question has been asked a lot here in the past. For example, here, here, here, or here. As you can see, one person already provided an answer, which can be useful, but shows that your post is too broad. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1


Cornell University offers lecture notes and videos of over thirty machine learning related courses in this link. CS4780 Introduction to Machine Learning in particular is a great resource (lecture notes, recordings).

The Visual Computing Group of TU Munich also offers lecture notes and videos of modern computer vision related tasks in this link. Introduction to Deep Learning in particular is a great resource (lecture notes, recordings). There are also courses on advanced topics of deep learning, image segmentation, 3D scanning, as well as a lot of publications on scene reconstruction, simulations and more.
