International laboratory of stochastic algorithms and high-dimensional inference (HDI Lab) invites applications for postdoctoral research positions in the field of high-dimensional probability and statistics as well as their fruitful applications. It is expected that the appointed candidates will take an active part in the project aimed at development and analysis of new efficient computational statistical algorithms for high-dimensional and challenging statistical problems like uncertainty quantification for MCMC algorithms, Bayesian inference, covariance estimation, estimation of barycenters etc. Particularly promising will be the research at the junction of the main topics of this project
The HSE Faculty of Computer Science has launched the International Laboratory of Stochastic Algorithms and High-Dimensional Inference (HDI Lab). The Lab’s Academic Supervisor,Eric Moulines, and Chief Research Fellow, Vladimir Spokoiny, spoke to us about the fundamental and applied aspects of research performed by the laboratory, their relations with machine learning, and Russian-French academic ties.
On September 10 Steve Oudot, Professor at Ecole Polytechnique and Researcher at INRIA, gave a mini-course "Statistics and Learning with topological descriptors".
HDI Lab staff attend International Vilnius Conference on Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics 2018
12th International Vilnius Conference on Probability Theory and Mathematical Statistics and 2018 IMS Annual Meeting on Probability and Statistics took place in Vilnius (Lithuania) on July 2-6. This is one of the world's leading conferences in the field of modern probability theory and mathematical statistics, which is held every four years since 1973. This year over 200 works were presented at the event and 500 participants from all over the globe attended it.
On May 17 and 24 Professor at the University of Minnesota and Chief Research Fellow of HDI Lab Sergey Bobkov gave a mini-course on "Strong probability distances and limit theorems".
