Summer School on Optimization, Big Data and Applications (OBA)
30th June - 06th July, 2019
From 30th June to 6th July 2019 the Department of Information Engineering (DINFO) of the University of Florence will organize a Summer School on Optimization, Big Data and Applications (OBA).
The School will be held in Veroli (a beautiful town in central Italy) and is intended to be an advanced course for Master, PhD students, Postdocs.
Participants should have a sound background in optimization and machine learning. The number of participants is limited to 50.
The main objective of the School is to provide machine learning models and novel optimization algorithms for big data problems and applications.
Lectures will be given by world leading researchers in optimization and machine learning. Participants are invited to present a big data application they have developed as part of their research activity.
Online convex optimization
Black-box optimization in machine learning
Model compression as constrained optimization, with applications to neural nets
Large-scale optimization for machine learning
Convolutional neural networks for visual recognition
The fee of the School is 100€.
The accommodations expenses for six nights are 150€.
