Mentiones BIMoS Distinguished Lecture takes place in room MA 001 (Mathematics building opposite the main building) of the TU Berlin in Straße des 17. Juni 136, 10623 Berlin.

Upcoming BIMoS Distinguished Lectures

Summer Term 2018

Title: "What Can Deep Learning Learn from Linear Regression "

Prof. Dr. Benjamin Recht (UC Berkeley, EECS)

Thursday, 03 May 2018

6.00 pm - 7.30 pm (c.t.)


Abstract: When training large-scale deep neural networks for pattern recognition, hundreds of hours on clusters of GPUs are required to achieve state-of-the-art performance. Improved optimization algorithms could potentially enable faster industrial prototyping and make training contemporary models more accessible. 

Bio: Benjamin Recht is an Associate Professor in the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences at the University of California, Berkeley.  Ben's research group studies the theory and practice of optimization algorithms with a particular focus on applications in machine learning and data analysis. Ben is the recipient of a Presidential Early Career Awards for Scientists and Engineers, an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship, the 2012 SIAM/MOS Lagrange Prize in Continuous Optimization, the 2014 Jamon Prize, the 2015 William O. Baker Award for Initiatives in Research, and the 2017 NIPS Test of Time Award.
