2024 EAUMP-ICTP School on the Mathematics of AI, in collaboration with AMU, CIMPA and ISP

An ICTP Meeting in person

The school presents a distinctive opportunity to explore the foundational mathematics of artificial intelligence (AI).

By convening experts in diverse fields, encompassing data assimilation, inverse problems, statistics, control theory, and graph theory — integral components of the mathematical machinery driving successful AI systems — the school offers participants a comprehensive perspective. Engaging lectures and workshops will cover key topics such as mathematical modeling of AI algorithms, optimization techniques, and the theoretical underpinnings of machine learning.

Positioned centrally in Kampala, this inclusive curriculum provides a dynamic platform for students and researchers to deepen their comprehension of the Mathematics of AI, fostering collaboration and knowledge exchange in the heart of Africa.
