The CoCoA [NIPS 2014] / CoCoA+ [ICML 2015] distributed optimization algorithm developed in a duo of papers with two co-authors from Edinburgh (Martin Takáč, Peter Richtarik) has won the MLconf Industry Impact Student Research Award. The award goes to our coauthor Virginia Smith (UC Berkeley).
Congratulations to Peter Richtarik who has been awarded a five year EPSRC early career fellowship to work on "Randomized Algorithms for Extreme Convex Optimization". A postdoc will join Peter next year to work on ...
Two former members of the School, Olivier Fercoq and John Pearson each won a 2nd prize at the 17th IMA Fox Prize in Numerical Analysis:
John Pearson, a Whittaker Fellow in the School of Mathematics, and Olivier Fercoq, a former Postdoc in the School, are among the six shortlisted finalists for the 17th Leslie Fox prize.
The School of Mathematics will join with computer scientists at Edinburgh University, as well as partners at 4 other major UK universities (Cambridge, Oxford, UCL and Warwick) in realising the vision of the Alan Turing Institute as the UK's hub for new research in data science.
Julian Hall has been awarded the prize for the best paper of 2013 in Computational Optimization and Applications.
The simplex method for linear programming is "the algorithm that runs the world" but, despite the efforts of academic and commercial optimization researchers over the past 30 years, there had been no implementation ...
