Deep Learning Theory Retreat
Elma Hotel, Zikhron Yaakov - February 19-20, 2023
The TAD center held on February 19-20, 2023 the first Deep Learning Theory Retreat at the Elma Hotel, Zikhron Yaakov.
This event was supported by the Higher Council for Education as part of the competitive research grant in the fields of AI and Data Science that the center won in 2021. One of the leading projects supported through this funding is the Center for Theory of Deep Learning led by Prof. Amir Globerson.
Much of the recent success of AI relies on deep learning techniques. However, these remain poorly understood from a theoretical perspective. In the project, we take advantage of an exceptionally strong and diverse group of researchers at TAU on this topic to tackle these challenging questions and their practical implications. A key aspect of this project is in forming new cross-disciplinary collaborations to uncover original angles on the core questions in this area.
The PIs and students in the group presented during the 2 days of the retreat their work in progress and established results. We also held special sessions on open problems and on interesting tools to promote discussions and collaborations in the group.
We thank all the participants and the Council for Higher Education for supporting the project.
Program Committee: Prof. Amir Globerson and Dr. Shiri Stempler.
