Mathematical Conversations

Vignettes about pure mathematics and machine learning

Through interactions with engineers and computer scientists over the years, including some current visitors at IAS, I have become pretty sold on the idea that machine learning is rich in questions which are interesting to pure mathematicians and where our insights might perhaps be useful. I will tell a few short stories along these lines. The talk will not require expertise in machine learning from either the audience or the speaker.
