Welcome to OPTML++! This is the homepage for the research seminar plus reading group on: Optimization for Machine Learning (the (++) stands for related areas (statistics, signal processing, computer vision, robotics, information theory, engineering, among others).
OPTML++ covers topics from convex, nonconvex, continuous and combinatorial optimization. This reading group is a mixture of a research seminar, a journal club, and a problem solving group.
This is our second semester. While the aim for the first semester was to help participants gain a substantial foothold in OPTML++ or to enrich their existing expertise, this semester we will begin to focus more on research papers, open questions, and the sort, while covering important classical and contemporary material as need be.
We are resuming our weekly meeting beginning March 8th, 2016
Next Meeting: 5:15PM; Location: 32-D707 Apr 13, 2016
