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".
Team of researchers of the HSE International Laboratory of Stochastic Algorithms and High-Dimensional Inference was announced as a winner of the Russian Science Foundation Grant Competition to support fundamental and exploratory scientific research conducted by individual scientific groups and was awarded three-year grant for implementation of the project "Analysis of high dimensional random objects with applications to large scale data processing" (RSF №18-11-00132).
HSE Lends Its Support to the Very First Conference in ‘New Frontiers in High-Dimensional Probability and Statistics’
On February 23 and 24, the Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the Russian Academy of Sciences hosted the first international mini-conference entitled ‘New frontiers in high-dimensional probability and statistics’. The event was attended by Russian and international researchers in the field of statistical methods of analysis of multidimensional data and modern stochastic algorithms. The conference was hosted by HSE, the Institute for Information Transmission Problems of the RAS and Skoltech. Organisers included HSE Faculty of Computer Science staff, Vladimir Spokoiny, Alexey Naumov, Denis Belomestny and Quentin Paris.
