From Statistical physics to computer science and back...

Hot News!!

* Wanna learn some machine learning but do not know where to start? This upcoming course in April and June is for you Introduction to Machine learning in the Ecole Doctorale EDPIF.

* Our two papers on the theory of neural nets arXiv:1806.05451 & arXiv:1805.09785 are accepted for spotlight presentations at NIPS 2018. Congrats to the students: Marylou Gabrie, Benjamin Aubin, Clement Luneau and Antoine Maillard!

* Congrat to Jean and Leo for their fantastic work on our new paper "Optimal errors and phase transitions in high-dimensional generalized linear models" published in proc. natl. acad. sci. usa.

* I am curently visiting the KITP in Santa Barbara for two events on Physics for machine learning and Machine learning for physics in Jan-Feb-March 2019.

* I am looking for post-docs and so is my longtime collaborator Lenka Zdeborova .

Research Interests
