Workshop: Machine Learning from Dynamic and Structural Data

22 June @ 10:00 am - 4:50 pm, Hepple Lecture Theatre, School of Geographical Sciences, University of Bristol, University Road, BS8 1SS

3 people discussing machine learning in depth

One of the important tasks of modern machine learning is extracting the structural and temporal information from datasets. For example, we may want to analyse the time-evolving friendship network structure from social network data. New statistical tools are being created to study and exploit this dynamic nature of various applications.

In contrast to a classic, stationary view of machine learning datasets, this new angle allows us to enrich our understanding of the structural information in a changing system. Challenges arise in this domain together with new research opportunities from both theoretical and practical aspects.

Join this workshop to hear leading statistical machine learning experts talking about their own projects on learning from dynamic and changing data.

Speakers include:

  • Prof Arthur Gretton, Lecturer Gatsby Computational Neuroscience Unit, Centre for Computational Statistics and Machine Learning at UCL
  • Dr Song Liu, Lecturer in Data Science and A.I at the University of Bristol
  • Dr Azadeh Khaleghi, Lecturer in Department of Mathematics & Statistics at Lancaster University
  • Prof Mark Beaumont, Professor of Statistics at the University of Bristol
  • Dr Haeran Cho, Lecturer at the University of Bristol

Registration is essential, as places are limited.
