This workshop will feature an in-depth and comprehensive overview of the core challenges in the theory and practice of deep learning, with a particular emphasis on the four themes of the program: optimization, generalization, robustness, and generative methods. The aim is to expose the attendees to the current frontier of deep learning research, including presenting the "hot off the press" progress made by program participants, industry visitors, and other invited guests.

All events take place in the Calvin Lab auditorium.
