Christopher Manning , Thomas M. Siebel Professor in Machine Learning, Linguistics, and Computer Science at Stanford University, will a give a public lecture, “Deep Learning and Cognition , on Wednesday, November 15 , which will take place at 5:00 p.m. in Wolfensohn Hall on the Institute campus. This lecture is part of the Theoretical Machine Learning Lecture Series , a new series curated by Sanjeev Arora , Visiting Professor in the School of Mathematics, and is made possible by a gift from Eric and Wendy Schmidt.
Sanjeev Arora , Visiting Professor in the School of Mathematics, and Richard Zemel , Visitor in the School of Mathematics, will a give a public lecture, “Machines: How Do They Learn and Where Are They Headed?,” on Friday, October 27 , which will take place at 5:30 p.m. in Wolfensohn Hall on the Institute campus. The event will feature panel discussion moderated by Robbert Dijgkraaf, Director and Leon Levy Professor.
Machine learning — sometimes called the leading edge of artificial intelligence — is the rapidly developing computer technology behind self-driving cars, complex web searches, medical and science applications, and face and speech recognition. Machine-learning programs synthesize knowledge in a way that’s analogous to how children...

A $2 million donation from Eric and Wendy Schmidt supports the launch of the Program in Theoretical Machine Learning in the Institute’s School of Mathematics. The gift will launch a three-year program beginning in the Fall of 2017 and will focus on developing the mathematical underpinnings of machine learning, including unsupervised learning, deep learning, optimization, and statistics.
