The Digital Transformation Institute hosts the workshop "The Analytical Foundations of Deep Learning: Interpretability and Performance Guarantees" October 19–22 11:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. U.S. Central. This workshop is available through Zoom or streaming on YouTube.

We are on the verge of a deep learning revolution that is leading to many disruptive technologies: from automatic speech recognition systems such as Apple Siri, to automated supermarkets such as Amazon Go, to autonomous vehicles such as Google Car. As we increasingly employ deep learning in our daily lives to support important decisions, it becomes critical to understand the predictions made by deep neural networks (DNNs). The purpose of this workshop is to share progress and foster collaboration on the analytical foundations of deep learning. Our goal is to help explain phenomena observed in practice from rigorous mathematical and statistical perspectives, and lead to new principles that help practitioners improve the design of algorithms and architectures, ultimately leading to new deep learning systems that are “correct by construction” and offer performance guarantees in terms of robustness or fairness etc.

This workshop is to have three well connected components: starting with two tutorials in one day, followed by two days of invited presentations, and a brainstorming session for the last day.
