Topics in Information and Inference Seminar

October 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Guy Bresler (MIT)

32-D677

This seminar consists of a series of lectures each followed by a period of informal discussion and social. The topics are at the nexus of information theory, inference, causality, estimation, and non-convex optimization. The lectures are intended to be tutorial in nature with the goal of learning about interesting and exciting topics rather than merely hearing about the most recent results. The topics are driven by the interests of the speakers, and with the exception of the two lectures on randomness and information, there is no planned coherence or dependency among them. Ad hoc follow-on meetings about any of the topics presented are highly encouraged.
