Research Seminar "Machine Learning Theory"

This is the research seminar by Ulrike's group.

When and where

Each thursday 14:00 - 15:00. Until further notice, all meetings take place virtually!


Most sessions take place in form of a reading group: everybody reads the assigned paper before the meeting. Then we jointly discuss the paper in the meeting. Sometimes we also have talks by guests or members of the group.


Everybody who is interested in machine learning theory. Students, PhD students and researchers alike. We do not mind people dropping in and out depending on whether they find the current session interesting or not.
