MATHEMATICAL AND COMPUTATIONAL ASPECTS OF MACHINE LEARNING (School)
The past few years have witnessed an impressive growth and
development of machine learning methods. Enhanced by large
collected databases and improved computational power, these
techniques have made spectacular progress in fields like image
recognition and have even reached the ability to surpass humans
in certain tasks and in games like Go.
Still, the conceptual mechanisms on which such forms of learning
work are largely not understood. Moreover, there is a complete lack
of prediction ability, not only in the efficiency of machine learning,
but also on its ability to work at all on a new problem. All this calls
for a strong commitment on the part of the mathematical community.
The present school aims at connecting international experts at the
forefront of research on the mathematical and computational aspects
of the problem with the interested scholars, especially the young
The programme includes 5 minicourses of 6 hours each.
Lectures will be delivered by experts of international standing.
There are no registration fees, but registration is mandatory.

• Short communications
The programme will include also up to 12 short communications of
20 minutes each.
When registering (http://crm.sns.it/event/451/registration.html),
each prospective participant who wishes to deliver a short
communication is invited to submit the title and abstract of his/her
talk together with a reference letter of his/her advisor or post-doc
mentor. The reference letter should be sent directly by the letter
writer by e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Deadline for application: 31st July 2019.
The Scientific Committee will then make the final selection and give
an answer within 15th August 2019.
The full list of participants will be posted at a later time, within
