HSE University and Yandex invite you to the joint second autumn school on generative models aimed at young undergraduate/graduate students planning to develop research career. This intense four-day workshop will consist of 3 interdisciplinary mini-courses, list of invited talks and round table discussion with the leading researchers. Key topics of this school are:

  • Introduction to Deep Learning
  • Generative Models for fun and profit
  • Introduction to bandit problems

Due to pandemic, the school is going to run in the mixed format: in addition to a zoom meeting room, there is a physical room booked that would allow participants to follow the event from HSE Pokrovsky campus.

The school is organised by three HSE laboratories:

  • LAMBDA (Laboratory of Methods for Big Data Analysis)
  • DeepBayes (Centre of Deep Learning and Bayesian Methods)
  • HDI Lab (International laboratory of stochastic algorithms and high-dimensional inference)

Yandex is an industry partner of the school.


Invited talks:

  • Alexey Artemov (Skoltech)
  • Evgeny Burnaev (Skoltech)
  • Anton Konushin (MSU, HSE, YSDA)
  • Stanislav Morozov (Yandex)
  • Maxim Panov (Skoltech)
  • Evgenii Stepanov (PDMI RAS, HSE)
  • Alexandra Suvorikova (WIAS, HSE)
  • Nikita Zhivotovsky (Google, HSE)

Live discussion with leading researchers:

On the 27th afternoon, we plan to have a live panel discussion with leading scientists on the future of AI and research career.

School materials:

All materials of the school is available via this page timetable. It contains slides of the lectures and talks. All seminar materials are available via github repository:

This school is supported by the RSF grant N19-71-30020 "Applications of probabilistic artificial neural generative models to development of digital twin technology for Non-linear stochastic systems".
