SMILE in Paris

Statistical machine learning is a very dynamic field at the intersection of statistics and computer science. The general goal is to design algorithms that "learn" from data, and which can be applied to a variety of application domains including signal processing, bioinformatics, multimedia data analysis or finance.

The "SMILE in Paris" initiative is a pluri-institutional initiative to gather researchers and students from Paris area in mathematics, computer science, and various application domains, to discuss and tackle challenges in the theory and practice of statistical machine learning.

It results from the merging of the former ParisTech machine learning seminar and the Bi-weekly learning seminar at Ecole normale supérieure.
