Seminar: "Block-coordinate Frank-Wolfe optimization with applications to structured prediction", Tuesday, November 13, 2012
11:00 AM in Everest
post-doctoral researcher, Ecole Polytechnique, Palaiseau, France, give a talk based on joint work with Simon Lacoste-Julien
, Mark Schmidt
and Patrick Pletscher
: Coordinate descent on one hand, and the Frank-Wolfe algorithm on the other hand are two of the earliest known first-order methods for convex optimization. Here we will combine the two methods to obtain a new randomized block-coordinate optimization algorithm for block-separable constrained problems, which appear for example in machine learning and computer vision.

Seminar: "Models of input dependent covariances between multiple responses", Thursday, November 8th, 2012
, Doctoral candidate at University of Cambridge
, Cambridge, U.K.
Accounting for input dependent covariances between multiple responses can greatly improve statistical inferences. For example, if we wish to predict the expression level of a gene (response) at a particular time (input), it helps to consider the expression levels of correlated genes, and how these correlations depend on time.

Seminar: 'Semantic attributes for object categorization', C. Lampert IST, Austria, Thursday October 25th 11am.
Speaker: Christoph Lampert
, Institute of Science and Technology, Klosterneuberg, Austria.
Abstract: The working mechanisms of attribute-based categorization, and in particular its use for fine-grained categorization, where classes are visually similar and training examples are rare, but discriminative knowledge by human experts is often available.
