DEEPK 2024
International Workshop on Deep Learning and Kernel Machines

March 7-8, 2024, Leuven, Arenberg Castle, Belgium

- Main scope -

Major progress and impact has been achieved through deep learning architectures with many exciting applications such as by generative models and transformers. At the same time it triggers new questions on the fundamental possibilities and limitations of the models, with respect to representations, scalability, learning and generalization aspects. Through kernel-based methods often a deeper understanding and solid foundations have been obtained, complementary to the powerful and flexible deep learning architectures. Recent examples are understanding generalization of over-parameterized models in the double descent phenomenon and conceiving attention mechanisms in transformers as kernel machines. The aim of DEEPK 2024 is to provide a multi-disciplinary forum where researchers of different communities can meet, to find new synergies between deep learning and kernel machines, both at the level of theory and applications.
