MLSS 2015 Kyoto

I’m back from two intensive and amazing weeks in Japan, where I attended the 2015 Summer School in Machine Learning, hosted by the University of Kyoto. It has been an amazing event, starring many top-notch lecturers in ML and over 400 participants in total. I want to thank in particular all of the Japanese friends I met during the meeting for their great hospitality and kindness. ありがとうございました!

Also, before the school, I had the great pleasure to make a short research visit to the RIKEN-BSI institute in Tokyo (August 19-21), hosted by Prof. Andrea Benucci. During my visit, I presented a seminar talk titled “An optimization-based framework for large-scale machine learning”.
