MSR-Inria joint lab: structured large-scale machine learning

Participants : Julien Mairal, Alberto Bietti, Hongzhou Lin.

Machine learning is now ubiquitous in industry, science, engineering, and personal life. While early successes were obtained by applying off-the-shelf techniques, there are two main challeges faced by machine learning in the “ big data ” era : structure and scale. The project proposes to explore three axes, from theoretical, algorithmic and practical perspectives: (1) large-scale convex optimization, (2) large-scale combinatorial optimization and (3) sequential decision making for structured data. The project involves two Inria sites and four MSR sites and started at the end of 2013.
