Eindhoven Stochastics Seminar

Feb 26, 11:00 - 12:00
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Rob van der Mei (CWI & VU Amsterdam) Saving Lives by Stochastic Optimization In serious, life-threatening situations, the timely presence of emergency services (ambulance, firefighters) can make the difference between survival or death. In this talk, I will discuss a number of models and optimization results and show that they can really make the difference.

Eindhoven Stochastics Seminar

Mar 10, 15:45 - 16:45
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Wouter de Vries (KPN) Artificial intelligent processes for people About 75 years after the first prudent attempts to capture artificial intelligence in conceptual models, the field is now an exuberant and flourishing domain. Many ingenious applications find their way to consumers and businesses, as well as the telecommunications sector. Through some appealing examples, such as image recognition and speech recognition, this lecture gives an impression of what artificial intelligence is about. In addition, some insights are given from the founding…

Graph Limits

Apr 6 - Apr 9
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Summary The workshop will address both the basic theory and the applications of graph limits, focusing on graphons and graphexes, as well as various applications. In the last few years several beautiful and exciting developments have taken place in this area. It is therefore time to bring together researchers from different fields, including probability theory, combinatorics, statistics and algorithmics. The workshop will run from Monday morning 09.00 am till Thursday afternoon 17.00 pm Sponsors        Organisers Christian Borgs…

Workshop YEP XVII: "Interacting Particle Systems"

May 11 - May 15
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Summary The theory of Interacting Particle Systems focuses on the dynamics of systems consisting of a large or infinite number of entities, in which the mechanism of evolution is random and follows simple, local rules. The topic had its beginnings in the 70s and 80s, motivated by Statistical Physics and fundamental problems from Probability Theory. It has since developed into a fruitful source of interesting mathematical questions and a very successful framework to model emerging collective complex behavior for systems…

Safe, Anytime-Valid Inference (SAVI)

May 25 - May 29
MF 11-12 (4th floor MetaForum Building, TU/e)

Summary A large fraction of published research in top journals in applied sciences such as medicine and psychology has been claimed as irreproducable. In light of this 'replicability crisis', traditional methods for hypothesis testing, most notably those based on p-values, have come under intense scrutiny. One central problem is the following: if our test result is promising but non-conclusive (say, p = 0.07) we cannot simply decide to gather a few more data points. While this practice is ubiquitous in…
