From Statistical physics to computer science and back...

Hot News!!

* 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!


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


* We just finished a nice school/workshop in cargese that we organized with Lenka Zdeborova on "Machine learning and statistical physics back together". Please feel free to download the slides of the speakers.


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


* We organized, with A. Bursuc & M. Lelarge, the course Deep Learning: do it yourself.
