Distinguished Theme Seminar Series

Each year we plan to introduce a timely and important research topic to our faculty and students. It will begin with a tutorial-style lecture to provide some background knowledge, followed by lectures by leading researchers who have made tremendous contributions to the recent advances of the topic. The four-week series is intentionally structured to provide ample time to digest the pertinent information. I hope this series will be informative and encourage you to research the topic in the future. At minimum, it will be enjoyable!

This year our inaugural distinguished theme seminar series is: Deep Learning Methods and Theory. Many thanks to Professors Lawrence Carin, Heng Huang, Ruslan Salakhutdinov, and Ying Nian Wu for accepting the invitation to share their insights and wisdom with us. Please check the program for more information, and details about our distinguished speakers.

Thanks also to Michael Zhu and his team, Xiao Wang and Anindya Bhadra, to make such a wonderful program possible.

I am thrilled about the program-- please make your best effort to participate!
