LSOLDM 2014 : Large-scale Online Learning and Decision Making 2014
Call For Papers
We are pleased to invite you to this year's Large-Scale Online Learning and Decision Making (LSOLDM2014) workshop that will take place at the historic Cumberland Lodge, Windsor, UK from Wednesday 10th to Friday 12th September 2014.
This year's workshop will seek to build upon the success of previous events and will bring leading researchers from academia and industry together to share their experiences of implementing large scale learning tasks. The workshop aims to provide a friendly and relaxed environment that enables researchers to share their work with a wider audience, to engage in informal discussions and to learn about the latest developments happening within this exciting field of research.
The CompLACS (Composing Learning for Artificial Cognitive Systems) project plays an important role in this year's theme and we will pay particular attention to topics such as reinforcement learning, scalability, deep learning, natural language processing, stochastic optimisation and bandits. A selection of example applications include, but are not limited to, robot-control, banner advertisement selection, news story selection, targeted email, and recommender systems.
We are pleased to announce this year's keynote speakers:
-) Antonio Criminisi - Microsoft Research Cambridge
-) Nello Cristianini - Professor of Artificial Intelligence, University of Bristol
-) Ralf Herbrich - Director of Machine Learning Science, Amazon
-) Stéphane Mallat - Professor of Applied Mathematics, École Polytechnique
This year Marko Grobelnik will also present a tutorial on best practices when working with Big Data, which should be an exciting addition to the programme.
