Upon successfully defending his dissertation before HSE Dissertation Council in Computer Science, Pavel Dvurechensky became the first Doctor of Computer Science in Russia. This was possible thanks to the fact that, starting in 2018, HSE University received the right to award its own academic degrees.
Conference "Foundations of Modern Statistics (Moscow edition)" on the occasion of Vladimir Spokoiny's 60th birthday, November 30, 2019
Foundations of Modern Statistics Workshop will be held at HSE University (Pokrovsky Boulevard, 11, R504) on November 30, 2019. The topics include, but not limited to: Mathematical statistics, Optimization, Econometrics, Stochastic analysis.
On August 26–30, 2019, the International Laboratory of Stochastic Algorithms and High Dimensional Inference (HDI Lab) held the Second Annual Conference ‘Structural Inference in High-Dimensional Models’. The focus of the event this year was on the following topics:
– High-dimensional probability and statistics;
– Statistical and computational optimal transport;
– Markov Chain Monte-Carlo (MCMC);
– Deep-network mathematics.
Markov Chains, authors: Douc, R., Moulines, E., Priouret, P., Soulier, P.
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.
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.
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.
