This workshop will introduce students and early-career researchers to the current trends in Mathematics (Optimization, Optimal transport, PDEs, Calculus of variations, Mean Field Games, and Optimal control) and its Applications, specifically to the fields of Data Sciences (Machine learning, Neural Network etc.), and will lay out various research interests in the field. It also aimed to create a strong networking environment among academia, industry, and national laboratories.

Plenary talk “Control and Machine Learning” by Enrique Zuazua

January 12th and 13th (10:30H) and January 14th (16:00H)

Abstract. We address some of the problems arising in the modern theory of Machine Learning from a control theoretical perspective. We will mainly focus on the use of control techniques for the analysis of Deep Neural Networks as a tool to address, for instance, the problem of Supervised Learning. We shall also discuss numerical implementation issues and formulate some interesting open problems.
