IDEAL mini-workshop on “Statistical and Computational Aspects of Robustness in High-dimensional Estimation”

October 19, 2021

Registration deadline: October 18, 2021

Today’s data pose unprecedented challenges to statisticians. It may be incomplete, corrupted or exposed to some unknown source of contamination or adversarial attack. Robustness is one of the revived concepts in statistics and machine learning that can accommodate such complexity and glean useful information from modern datasets. This virtual workshop will address several aspects of robustness such as statistical estimation and computational efficiency in the context of modern high-dimensional data analysis. The workshop speakers are Ankur Moitra, Ilias Diakonikolas, Jacob Steinhardt and Po-Ling Loh. Please register at the webpage given below for free to participate in the virtual workshop.
