DESCRIPTION:Lecture 1: Modular forms and Galois representations\n\nAbstrac
t: This will be a broad overview of the connection between Galois groups a
nd modular forms\, and reciprocity laws in this context which link the t
wo. One such law is Serre's modularity conjecture which has the particular
consequence that there is a unique\, irreducible\, odd motive of rank 2 o
ver the rationals\, of weight 12 and with good reduction everywhere. It
arises from the Ramanujan Delta-function.\n\nSchedule:\n11.00 Tea/Coffee\n

DESCRIPTION:Lecture 2: Automorphy lifting theorems\n\nAbstract: This lectu
re will talk about a technique used in the proof of Serre's modularity con
jecture. This technique\, called modularity/automorphy lifting\, was devel
oped by Wiles in his proof of Fermat's Last Theorem. It allows one to go "
backwards" from a Galois representation to a modular form. (The "forward"
direction from modular forms to Galois representations was known earlier b
y the work of Eichler\, Shimura\, Deligne and Serre.) Its likelyto be a ke
y tool in any attack on higher dimensional analogs of Serre's conjecture.\

DESCRIPTION:Lecture 3: Dimensions of deformation rings and generic unobstr
uctedness\n\nAbstract: This lecture will talk about deformation rings of G
alois representations as defined by Barry Mazur. Their spectra are moduli
spaces of Galois representations. These moduli spaces provides a context f
or the study of a classical conjecture of Leopoldt. I will indicate how au
tomorphy lifting techniques give rather complete information about these m
oduli spaces in the self-dual case\, while in the non-self-dual case\, the
corresponding moduli spaces are still shrouded in mystery. It is the latt
er case which is relevant to Leopoldt's conjecture which postulates a dime
nsion formula for these spaces.\n\nSchedule:\n11.00 Tea/Coffee\n11.30 Srin

DESCRIPTION:Inauguration: 1:55 PM\n\nThe Alan Turing lecture series is a n
ew initiative of ICTS. In this series\, eminent Biologists\, Computer Scie
ntists\, and Engineers would be invited to deliver lectures on significant
developments in their areas. Details about this inaugural Turing lecture
series and the lecturers are given below\,\n\nProf. Sanjeev Arora\nPrincet
on University\n\nTime: 2:00 - 2:45 PM\n\nOvercoming Computational Intracta
bility in Unsupervised Learning\nGiven today’s data deluge\, unsupervise
d learning i.e. learning with unlabeled data is becoming increasingly impo
rtant. Most natural problems in this domain e.g. for models such as mixtur
e models\, HMMs\, graphical models\, topic models and sparse coding/dictio
nary learning\, deep learning are NP-hard. Therefore researchers in practi
ce use either heuristics or convex relaxations with no concrete approximat
ion bounds. Several nonconvex heuristics work well in practice\, which is
also a mystery. The talk will describe a sequence of recent results whereb
y rigorous approaches leading to polynomial running time are possible for
several problems in unsupervised learning. The proof of polynomial running
time usually relies upon nondegeneracy assumptions on the data and the mo
del parameters\, and often also on stochastic properties of the data (aver
age-case analysis). Some of these new algorithms are very efficient and pr
actical. e.g. for topic modeling.\n\n\nProf. Robert Schapire\nMicrosoft Re
search and Princeton University\n\nTime: 2:45 - 3:30 PM\n\nThe Contextual
Bandits Problem: A New\, Fast\, and Simple Algorithm\nIn the contextual ba
ndits learning problem\, the learner must repeatedly decide which action t
o take in response to an observed context\, and is then permitted to obser
ve the received reward\, but only for the chosen action. The goal is to
learn through experience to behave nearly as well as the best policy (or d
ecision rule) in some possibly very large space of candidate policies. W
e assume that the learner can only access this policy space using an oracl
e for solving empirical cost-sensitive classification problems\; in practi
ce\, most off-the-shelf classification algorithms could be used for this p
urpose. In this very general setting\, we present a new\, fast\, and sim
ple algorithm that achieves a regret guarantee that is statistically optim
al. Moreover\, this algorithm makes very modest use of the oracle\, whic
h it calls far less than once per round\, on average. These properties s
uggest this may be the most practical contextual bandits algorithm among a
ll existing approaches that are provably effective for general policy clas
ses.\nThis is joint work with Alekh Agarwal\, Daniel Hsu\, Satyen Kale\, J
ohn Langford and Lihong Li.\n\n \n\nProf. Ravi Kannan\nMicrosoft Research
\n\nTime: 4:00 - 4: 45 PM\n\nVersatility of Singular Value Decomposition\n
Singular Value Decomposition (SVD) is a basic tool to deal with matrix dat
a and has traditionally been applied in a variety of fields. In the modern
setting\, matrix sizes have increased\, but improved sampling based algor
ithms are still effective. Besides\, many new applications of SVD to Gauss
ian Mixtures\, Nearest Neighbors\, Topic Modeling etc. have been developed
. Combined with a simple device of thresholding\, SVD is useful on a new b
unch of problems. The talk will discuss from first principles some recent
developments.\n\n\nThese lectures jointly organized by ICTS and the Depart
ment of Computer Science and Automation\, IISc are a part of the Symposium
on Learning\, Algorithms and Complexity\n\nhttps://indico.tifr.res.in/ind

ce antiquity. In this lecture a survey of this problem\, starting from its
independent origins in many cultures in ancient times to some of the majo

s to the very active and exciting area of modern mathematics known as “a
rithmetic geometry” and how the ideas of this subject have revolutionize
