In October, Distinguished Visiting Professor Sanjeev Arora was a co-organizer of a workshop supported by Eric and Wendy Schmidt. During the four-day workshop, "Theory of Deep Learning: Where Next?," participants discussed the progress of deep learning theory and identified possible areas of future research. The workshop is one of many gatherings planned for the School of Mathematics’ special year on Optimization, Statistics, and Theoretical Machine Learning. Videos of the workshop can be found here.
