[previous] [home] [search] Theory Reading Group [contact] [up] [next] 


Establish a reading group, which meets about every other week, where some IDSIA researcher/student presents a paper The paper should preferably contain a cute and easy to understand and memorizable idea (to be presented), but which is confirmed (or believed to be confirmable) by mathematical proofs or convincing(!) experimental evidence.

Organizer: Marcus Hutter
Date&Time: Wednesday 15:00-16:30
Location: SUPSI/IDSIA, Galleria 2, CH-6928 Manno-Lugano, Switzerland
