For the project "Structured and continuous reinforcement learning"
funded by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) we are looking for a PostDoc with strong background in mathematics (such as dynamic programming, probability theory, statistics, optimization, OR) and interest in reinforcement learning. Highly qualified PhD candidates might be considered as well.

Cambridge - Tübingen PhD Fellowships in Machine Learning

Posted by Rebecca Martin on Mon, 14/10/2013 - 10:00

The University of Cambridge Machine Learning Group and the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems Empirical Inference Department in Tübingen are two of the world’s leading centres for machine learning research. We are launching a new and exciting initiative whereby a small group of select PhD candidates will be jointly supervised at both institutions. The principal supervisors will be Zoubin Ghahramani at Cambridge and Bernhard Schoelkopf at the Max Planck Institute, with potential for co-supervision by other members of the research groups (e.g.

IEEE TNNLS Special Issue -- Deadline Extended

CALL FOR PAPERS

IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON NEURAL NETWORKS AND LEARNING SYSTEMS

Special Issue on
Learning in Non-(geo)metric Spaces

Traditional machine learning and pattern recognition techniques are intimately linked to the notion of "feature space." Adopting this view, each object is described in terms of a vector of numerical attributes and is therefore mapped to a point in a Euclidean
(geometric) vector space so that the distances between the points reflect the observed (dis)similarities between the respective objects.
