NTR Webinar: Sequential Decision Making with Gaussian Processes

NTR organizes and hosts scientific webinars on neural networks and invites speakers from all over the world to present their recent work.

On March 1 Viacheslav Borovitskiy, SPbSU, PDMI RAS, Saint Petersburg, Russia, presented a technical Zoom webinar on Sequential Decision Making with Gaussian Processes.

About the webinar: 

Sequential decision making problems are ubiquitous in all kinds of applications. An automatic agent that solves such problems needs to learn from its interaction with the environment, then use what it learned to drive further actions.

Since the data available for learning is usually scarce, probabilistic models like Gaussian processes are often used.

Borovitskiy talked about such models and their application to sequential decision making problems, including black-box optimization among others.
