Seminar on Theoretical Machine Learning

What Do Our Models Learn?
Aleksander Mądry
12:30pm | Remote Access Only - see link below
Large-scale vision benchmarks have driven---and often even defined---progress in machine learning. However, these benchmarks are merely proxies for the real-world tasks we actually care...

Joint IAS/Princeton University Number Theory Seminar

New constraints on the Galois configurations of algebraic integers in the complex plane
Vesselin Dimitrov
3:00pm | https://theias.zoom.us/j/959183254
Fekete (1923) discovered the notion of transfinite diameter while studying the possible configurations of Galois orbits of algebraic integers in the complex plane. Based...

On Langevin Dynamics in Machine Learning
Michael I. Jordan
3:00pm | Remote Access Only - see link below
Langevin diffusions are continuous-time stochastic processes that are based on the gradient of a potential function. As such they have many connections---some known and many still to be...

Independence of $\ell$ for Frobenius conjugacy classes attached to abelian varieties
Rong Zhou
3:00pm | https://theias.zoom.us/j/959183254
Let $A$ be an abelian variety over a number field $E\subset \mathbb{C}$ and let $v$ be a place of good reduction lying over a prime $p$. For a prime $\ell\neq p$, a result of...
