Research Interests

Our group is interested in algorithms for machine learning, especially optimization algorithms. Optimization is at the heart of machine learning. Most machine learning problems entail solving some kind of optimization problem. This holds true for classical as well as for deep learning approaches. We design efficient algorithms, prove correctness, implement them (usually in Python), and provide them to the public.
