Purdue Statistics Launches New Distinguished Theme Seminar Series


Purdue Statistics is proud to announce the inaugural Distinguished Theme Seminar Series. The idea is to introduce a timely and important research topic each year to the statistical audience via both introductory overview and in-depth research talks from leading researchers.  All are welcome!

This year, our theme is "Deep Learning Methods and Theory” and the speakers are:

Lawrence Carin (Duke, Aug 28@3:30pm Eastern Daylight Time),

Heng Huang (Pittsburgh, Sept 4@10:30am),

Ying Nian Wu (UCLA, Sept 11@10:30am) and

Ruslan Salakhutdinov (Carnegie Mellon, Sept 18@3:30pm).

Moreover, we are able to take advantage of the online platform this year to broadcast these talks live via both Zoom meetings, with a limited number of participants on a first come, first served basis, and via YouTube livestream, which is open to all. The series is intentionally split over four weeks to allow time for the audience to digest the pertinent information.  

Detailed information and schedule are available at the link below:


We hope this series will be informative and encourage you to research the topic in the future. At minimum, it will be enjoyable! Please disseminate broadly as you see fit.
