Abstract:

After a brief conceptual review of aims and tools, we will cover the Probabilistic Numerical approach to quadrature (integration) and optimisation (quasi-newton methods and stochastic gradient descent).

Reading:

There is no required reading, however Persi Diaconis’ 1988 paper Bayesian Numerical Analysis provides a good, historical introduction to the subject matter of probabilistic numerics.

This talk is part of the Machine Learning Reading Group @ CUED series.
