LMS/ICMS Symposium: Analytic and Geometric Approaches to Machine Leaning

26 – 30 July 2021, participation via Zoom

As we enter the age of data, we have seen the birth of machine learning methods to a diverse range of applications, including computer vision, classification/clustering, regression, data mining and prediction.

Machine learning has been remarkably successful in applications but our theoretical understanding of many machine learning algorithms is still missing. This has led to an increasing appetite for the mathematical analysis of machine learning algorithms. Particularly exciting is the potential for methods from applied mathematics, probability theory, and statistics to contribute to machine learning theory.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together researchers that apply mathematical methodology to machine learning. We particularly want to emphasise how mathematical theory can inform applications and vice versa.

This virtual workshop is the first of two workshops on this topic. The second will be an in-person workshop to be held at the University of Bath, in December 2021. In this first workshop, invited speakers are encouraged to present open problems and explore interesting directions for potential research as part of their talk. The schedule allows participants time to initiate conversations and collaborations that can be developed at the winter workshop.
