Workshop on Random Matrices and Random Systems

Mon, 03/31/2014 - 09:00 to Fri, 04/04/2014 - 12:00
2013-2014

March 31, 2014 - April 4, 2014

 

This workshop is part of the topical program "Non-equilibrium Dynamics and Random Matrices" which will take place during the 2013-2014 academic year at the Institute for Advanced Study.

 The workshop aims to provide information regarding the random matrix theory  and applications to combinatorics, statistics and mathematical physics.

Workshop on Machine Learning, Theory, and Method in the Social Sciences

Wed, 03/04/2020 - 09:00 to Thu, 03/05/2020 - 17:00
2019-2020

The workshop is by invitation-only.

Can the dramatic recent progress in machine learning lead to conceptual advances in the social sciences and humanities? Although we have access to social and cultural datasets of unprecedented scale, quality, and complexity, this question remains open. New methods of machine learning (e.g., various flavors of deep nets, transformer nets, AlphaGo and the like) often take a "black box" view of data. Little theoretical understanding exists about what patterns in data were implicitly identified as part of the learning.

Workshop on Social and Ethical Challenges in Machine Learning

Wed, 11/06/2019 - 09:00 to 18:00
2019-2020

This invitation-only workshop will bring together experts in machine learning and social scientists in an effort to reflect on the social and ethical challenges of producing machine learning and using it "in the wild."  Possible topics include the social and ethical issues related to: the global digital labor market that supports many practical applications of ML;  the impact of AI advances on work and occupations; unchartered territories for the application of new learning methods; public attitudes toward (and understandings of) artificial intelligence; deep fakes, dem

Workshop on Mean Curvature and Regularity

Mon, 11/05/2018 - 10:00 to Fri, 11/09/2018 - 12:00
2018-2019

 

November 5, 2018 - November 9, 2018

 

This workshop will focus on recent advances related to the variational theory of the area functional and regularity of minimal varieties. Topics include minimal surfaces, constant mean curvature surfaces, the Allen-Cahn regularization, mean curvature self-shrinkers and self-expanders, perturbation/gluing techniques, isoperimetric problems and others.
