Reading Group Machine Learning for Automated Algorithm Design

Organizer: Matthias Feurer

Time and Place

Time: Thursdays, 10.45AM
Place: Kitchen in building 074


In the reading group, we discuss current and classical research papers. The emphasis lies on work on algorithm configuration, algorithm selection and automated machine learning, but interesting papers from other areas are welcome. All participants can make recommendations for the reading list, from which one or more papers are selected for each meeting. Participants read the selected papers individually in preparation for the meeeting. During the meeting, the person in charge will give a short presentation summarizing the paper and lead a discussion about the paper during the meeting.

The target audience of the reading group consists of academic staff and interested guests, comparable to a staff seminar, Oberseminar or a seminar in a graduate school. We encourage students, especially those writing their thesis or doing their project in our group, to participate. Nevertheless, no ECTS points can be earned for the reading group.
