The second Summer School on Deep Learning and Bayesian Methods was held in Moscow from August 27 to September 1, this year in English. During 6 days participants were studying and implementing Bayesian methods in neural networks, exchanging their experience and discussing research ideas.
Samsung-HSE Laboratory will develop mechanisms of Bayesian inference in modern neural networks, which will solve a number of problems in deep learning. The laboratory team will be made up of the members of the Bayesian Methods Research Group — one of the strongest scientific groups in Russia in the field of machine learning and Bayesian inference. It will be headed by a professor of the Higher School of Economics Dmitry Vetrov.
