HSE University invites you to join an autumn school on machine learning aimed at undergraduate/graduate students and young postdoctoral fellows from pure and applied mathematics. This intense three-day workshop will consist of 4 interdisciplinary mini-courses, a series of short talks (20 min long) and a poster session. The third day of the school will be very similar to an A* level conference: short papers and a long poster session. 

Key topics of this school:

  • General Machine Learning
  • Deep Learning (architectures, generative models, deep reinforcement learning, etc.)
  • Reinforcement learning
  • NLP
  • Learning Theory (bandits, game theory, statistical learning theory, etc.)
  • Optimization (convex and non-convex optimization, matrix/tensor methods, etc.)
  • Probabilistic Inference (Bayesian methods, graphical models, Monte Carlo methods, etc.)
  • Trustworthy Machine Learning (accountability, causality, fairness, privacy, robustness, etc.)
  • Applications (computational biology, crowdsourcing, healthcare, neuroscience, social good, climate science, etc.)


4 speakers (TBA)

1. Posterior sampling and Bayesian bootstrap: sample complexity and regret bounds. Alexey Naumov (HSE)

2. Optimal Transport and Generative Modeling based on Stochastic Processes. Evgeny Burnaev (Skoltech)


We invite authors of A* papers (2021-2022) to present their work. Each talk will be 20 min long.

This school is supported by the RSF grant N19-71-30020 "Applications of probabilistic artificial neural generative models in the development of digital twin technology for Non-linear stochastic systems" and jointly organized by three laboratories of HSE University:

  • HDI Lab (International laboratory of stochastic algorithms and high-dimensional inference)
  • LAMBDA (Laboratory of Methods for Big Data Analysis)
  • DeepBayes (Centre of Deep Learning and Bayesian Methods)

Poster Session
