Efficient Computational Methods with Provable Guarantees for Data-Driven Problems

Lecture | November 19 | 3:30-4:30 p.m. | 3108 Etcheverry Hall

Somayeh Sojoudi, Berkeley IEOR and EECS

Industrial Engineering & Operations Research

The area of data science lacks efficient computational methods with provable guarantees that can cope with the large-scale nature and the high nonlinearity of many real-world systems. Practitioners often design heuristic algorithms tailored to specific applications, but the theoretical underpinnings of these methods remain a mystery and this limits their usage in safety-critical systems. In this......   More >
