Mathematics Colloquia and Seminars
Optimization Methods in Data ScienceGGAM Colloquium
|Speaker:||Shiqian Ma, UC Davis, Dept. of Mathematics|
|Start time:||Wed, Oct 18 2017, 5:10PM|
In this talk, I will give a brief introduction of my research on numerical optimization algorithms. I will focus on alternating direction method of multipliers and stochastic algorithms, which have been widely studied and used in machine learning and some other fields. Several interesting applications will also be discussed to illustrate how optimization plays an important role in addressing problems in data science.
