An ICTP Hybrid Meeting

“Youth in high dimensions” gives to young researchers from academia and industry the opportunity to gather and present recent results on high-dimensional statistical problems, in areas ranging from machine learning and inference to neuroscience or statistical physics.
Typical problems in high-dimensions include estimating noisy signals (compressed sensing, PCA and tensor decomposition), analysing (deep) neural-networks, detecting communities in large networks, or modelling disordered spin systems. These seemingly unrelated problems share many similarities in their phenomenology and in the tools used to analyse them. The core of the field is made of a very active, diverse and quickly expanding community of physicists, computer scientists, mathematicians, information theorists and engineers, with the common desire to tackle increasingly challenging problems at the forefront of data science. This conference aims at reinforcing the links among this interdisciplinary community, and in particular of its youngest theory-oriented members, and to bring forward the latest development happening in the high-dimensional world.
