MSR India Summer School 2015 on Machine Learning

Location: Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore India

The MSR India Summer School series, held in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Science, consists of lectures in a chosen area by leading experts from around the world. The aim is to introduce students and researchers to important new areas and the latest results and to provide a forum for Indian and international researchers to interact. The 2015 Summer School will be held between June 15 – 26 at the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore in the area of Machine Learning.

Understanding data has become essential for almost all modern applications. This data intensive nature of applications have spurred a great deal of research in Machine Learning and several related areas. The 2015 MSR Summer school focused on Machine Learning and its application to Big Data. In particular, the lectures covered several aspects of supervised/unsupervised learning in high-dimensions and with large number of data points.

The School addressed both theoretical as well as practical aspects of the chosen area and was targeted at research scholars, faculty members, masters and senior undergraduate students.

The lectures were designed to offer self-contained introductions to chosen topics, leading up to some open problems for research.

There was also a day long Azure hackathon as part of the summer school agenda.
