Philip Aston is one of the organisers of the first LMS-Bath Symposium on the Mathematics of Machine Learning which ran last week (3-7 August). The original intention was to have a relatively small workshop at the Universtity of Bath. However, due to the pandemic, the Symposium has gone online and now over 900 people from all over the world have signed up to attend! There is a public lecture on Thursday by Carola-Bibiane Schönlieb (Cambridge) entitled “Looking into the black box: how mathematics can help to turn deep learning inside out”. Videos from the event are being posted on the LMS youtube channel. The photo below shows the Bath campus.
