Mokameeting, June 26th, 10:30, Sebastian Claici

Mokameeting, June 26th 10:30, Room A415 Sebastian Claici (MIT) Title: Transportation Techniques for Constrained Learning Problems Abstract: Optimal transport (OT) is a method of measuring distances between probability distributions that has found numerous applications in machine learning, computer graphics, image processing, and others. However, research has focused largely on computing transport distances quickly in great generality, …

Mokameeting, Soledad Villar (New York University), Wed. April 4th 2018, 10:00-11:00, room A215

Soledad Villar (New York University) Wed. April 4th 2018, INRIA Paris, 10:00-11:00, room A215 Title:  Quadratic assignment, semidefinite programming, and graph neural networks. Abstract: Quadratic assignment is a very general problem in theoretical computer science. It includes graph matching, the traveling salesman problem, and the Gromov-Hausdorff distance between finite metric spaces as particular cases. Quadratic assignment …

Mokameeting, Giovanni Conforti (École Polytechnique), Jan. 10th 2018, 11:00-12:00, room A415

Giovanni Conforti (École Polytechnique): Title: The dynamics of Schrodinger bridges Schroedinger bridges (SB) allow to lift from the point to the mesure setting the concept of Brownian bridge. On the other hand, they arise naturally as the critical curve for the dynamic formulation of the regularized Monge-Kantorovich problem. In this talk I will present some …
