Ellis QPhML 2020

Registration is closed. In case you didn’t register you can follow the live streaming on YouTube.

The workshop will be held online. Details on how to connect will be announced soon.

Ellis Logo

The aim of the Ellis program Quantum and Physics based machine learning (QPhML) is to use concepts from Quantum Physics and Statistical Physics to develop novel machine learning algorithms with the ultimate aim to realize novel future, possibly energy efficient, hardware implementations.

The program is part of the recent European initiative called ELLIS (European Laboratory for Learning and Intelligent Systems) to stimulate research on machine learning by building networks of top reseach groups in Europe.

Program

Below you find the tentative program of the workshop. Each talk is given 30 minutes + 10 minutes discussion. After each session, there will be parallel breakout sessions where you can meet with the speakers and discuss further.
