In this Hausdorff school we study algorithmic aspects of foundational methods
to learn and generalise from data. While the nexus is algorithmic, this area of
research is a rich and vibrant field within theoretical computer science which
draws from deep connections to statistics, geometry, and combinatorics.
This Hausdorff School is intended for motivated graduate or postdoctoral
students of mathematics or computer science. Leading experts discuss geometric
and probabilistic approximation techniques and their connections to learning
theory. Each invited speaker gives a mini-course spanning three lectures
ranging from introductory material to advanced topics and current research.
