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 Theory of Deep Learning: Where next?

Tue, 10/15/2019 - 09:00 to Fri, 10/18/2019 - 06:00
2019-2020

Organizers:

The workshop is organized by Sanjeev Arora (IAS/Princeton University), Joan Bruna (IAS/NYU), Rong Ge (IAS/Duke), Suriya Gunasekar(IAS/Toyota Technical Institute), Jason Lee (IAS/USC), Bin Yu (IAS/UC Berkeley)

This workshop seeks to bring together deep learning practitioners and theorists to discuss progress that has been made on deep learning theory, and to identify promising avenues where theory is possible and useful. We will have several invited talks each day and also spotlight talks by young researchers.

Workshop on New Directions in Reinforcement Learning and Control

Thu, 11/07/2019 - 09:00 to Fri, 11/08/2019 - 06:00
2019-2020

This 2-day workshop at the Institute for Advanced Study will focus on research at the intersection of reinforcement learning, control and optimization. When collecting data to solve real-life and real-time problems in dynamic environments, a host of challenges arise that require novel engineering approaches and theoretical thinking at the intersection of both classical and incipient disciplines. This workshop will bring together researchers working on cross-disciplinary approaches to highlight the most exciting new directions in RL and control.

Optimization, Complexity and Invariant Theory

Mon, 06/04/2018 - 09:00 to Fri, 06/08/2018 - 17:00
2018

This workshop aims to explore connections between complexity and optimization with algebra and analysis, which have emerged from the works on operator scaling. The hope is to inform participants from different communities of both basic tools and new developments, and set out new challenges and directions for this exciting interdisciplinary research.

Workshop on Motives, Galois Representations and Cohomology Around the Langlands Program

Mon, 11/06/2017 - 09:00 to Fri, 11/10/2017 - 12:30
2017-2018

The main theme  will be the relationship between cohomology of arithmetic groups, Galois representations, and motives, which arises out of the Langlands program.  The workshop will emphasize some directions that have seen recent progress, for example, new results and new features in the non-Hermitian case, or constructions of new Euler systems
