Optimisation & Learning


The design of machines capable of intelligent comprehension and decision making is one of the major current scientific and technological challenges, calling for new models, new algorithms, and new analysis paradigms.

In this chair, we intend to leverage on optimization and game theory to make concrete advances on the mathematical foundations of AI.
