July - December 1997
Organisers: C M Bishop (Aston), D Haussler (UCSC), G E Hinton (Toronto), M Niranjan (Cambridge), L G Valiant (Harvard)
Organisers: L Tarassenko (Oxford), S J Roberts (Imperial) and C M Bishop (Microsoft)
The aim of this week is to present and explore some of the issues surrounding the practical application of machine learning methods. Talks will cover practical examples and case studies and will highlight areas in which theoretical developments have influenced application and discuss future directions for theory which arise from practise.
Registration: Since the week falls during the Cambridge academic term, the Newton Institute will unfortunately not be able to provide any assistance with accommodation. Participants must therefore make their own arrangements for accommodation and evening meals. However, light lunches will be available for purchase in the Institute. In order to gauge numbers, participants are requested to complete and return the short registration form.
*** Closing date for registration: Thursday 30 October at 12:00 noon. ***
This themed week will form a component of the Newton Institute programme on Neural Networks and Machine Learning, organised by C M Bishop, D Haussler, G E Hinton, M Niranjan and L G Valiant.
