For the BIMoS Distinguished Lecture an internationally recognized scientist in the general field of modeling and simulation is invited.

All BIMoS Distinguished Lectures take place in room H 3005 in the main building of the TU Berlin in Straße des 17. Juni 135, 10623 Berlin.

Upcoming BIMoS Distinguished Lectures

Summer term 2017

Title: "Mathematical Mysteries of Deep Neural Networks"

Prof. Dr. Stéphane Mallat (École Normale Supérieur)

Monday, May 15, 2017

4 pm - 6 pm (c.t.)


Classification and regression require to approximate functions in high dimensional spaces. Avoiding the dimensionality curse opens many questions in statistics, probability, harmonic analysis and geometry. Convolutional deep neural networks can obtain spectacular results for image analysis, speech understanding, natural languages and many other problems. We shall review their architecture and analyze their mathematical properties, with many open questions. We show that the architectures implement multiscale contractions, where wavelets have an important role, and they can learn groups of symmetries. This will be illustrated through applications to image and audio classification, but also to statistical physics and computations of molecular energies in quantum chemistry.
