Mathematics-Driven Research seminar


The world is constantly changing, and the use of technologies is rapidly growing. However, lots of challenges still remain unsolved. This is where fundamental mathematics enters the scene.  Mathematics is presented almost everywhere, and the efficiency of the industry highly depends on the mathematical background of the engineers and researchers working towards scientific and technological progress. The more technologically advanced are devices we use in our everyday life, the richer is the mathematics driving them.

Therefore, the Baltic Institute of Mathematics in cooperation with the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and the Institute of Mathematics of NAS of Ukraine are starting up a research seminar for students from the last two years of high school and first two years of the university, where we will discuss the current technologies and fundamental mathematics behind them. Every participant will be given an opportunity not only to get knowledge but also to give a try on doing research. Each meeting will be followed by a small research project.

Understanding Neural Networks
October 30, 13:30 - 14:30 CET 
We will start with a formal definition and introduction to the mathematics behind neural networks (NNs). Then, we will show examples of how NNs are used in research and industry. Finally, we will discuss some open challenges and opportunities for research and applications in the domain of deep learning.
