Machine Learning Theory Workshop

TIME:June 20-21, 2019
LOCATION:Lecture Hall, Jiayibing Building, Jingchunyuan 82, Peking University

      Over the last few years, tremendous progress has been made in machine learning, in terms of both applications and algorithms. At the same time, there also have been a number of novel works on theoretical understandings for different learning problems and algorithms, but many challenges still remain. The goal of this workshop is to study the challenges in machine learning theory, especially to foster discussion and spur research between experts and researchers in the field that can solve fundamental problems, as well as to promote academic communication and cooperation between faculties and students from Peking University and overseas outstanding scholars.
