LMS/IMA Joint Meeting 2023

The LMS is delighted to announce the 2023 LMS/IMA Joint Meeting on 'The Mathematical Foundations of Artificial Intelligence'. We welcome all who are interested to attend this event, with registration open both to LMS/IMA Members and to non-members.

Artificial Intelligence is a rapidly evolving field that is already having a great societal impact thanks to the unprecedented performance of deep neural networks and AI generative models. The technological success of AI is boosting research on the mathematical foundations of AI which builds on an already rich history of important mathematical results and encompasses many areas, including physics-inspired machine learning, statistical physics, Bayesian, deep, and reinforcement learning, among others.

The LMS/IMA Conference on The Mathematical Foundations of AI aims at bringing together top mathematicians and computer scientists working in both the academic and the private sectors to highlight key developments in the field. We foresee stimulating discussions and exchange of ideas on this exciting and fast-developing field that will contribute to changing the landscape of the field and shape future research directions.

Programme (all timings in BST)
