This workshop will take place at Gross Hall on the campus of Duke University.


The SAMSI Deep Learning program will bring together mathematical, statistical, and computer scientists interested in understanding the theoretical capabilities and limitations of deep learning methodology. This workshop will feature overview talks that introduce the basic concepts of deep networks (including convolutional neural networks, recursive neural networks, generative adversarial networks, and various kinds of autoencoders). Additionally, there will be a series of talks that highlight recent research in this area. On Thursday, participants will break out into working groups, and develop plans for their semester of work on these topics. On Friday morning, the leaders of the working groups will share those plans with all of the workshop participants. The workshop ends at noon on Friday.
