POSTPONED: Workshop on Optimisation for Data Science

Date: 

Monday, 12 July 2021 - 9:00am to Tuesday, 13 July 2021 - 5:00pm

Venue: 

RC-3085 (Red Centre building, UNSW Kensington Campus)

 THIS WORKSHOP IS POSTPONED DUE TO THE CURRENT COVID OUTBREAK. 

The field of optimization supplies crucial methodology for formulating and solving key problems in data science. Examples range from linear programming for support vector machines in the 1960s, to compressed sensing in the 2000s, and up to deep learning and matrix optimization problems today. Cross-fertilization between machine learning, statistics, and optimization has been remarkably beneficial for all areas. This workshop brings together researchers in both optimization and data science, broadly defined, with the aim of promoting further collaboration at the intersection.

Organisers: Nam Ho-Nguyen (University of Sydney) and Vera Roshchina (UNSW). 

Please contact the organisers if you are interested in participating.

This workshop is a UNSW Data Science Hub (uDASH) event.
