Laboratory for Information and Inference Systems – LIONS
We divide our research into two synergistic theory thrusts: information scalable optimization and data acquisition, and learning theory and methods for low-dimensional signal models. These research directions dovetail in order to develop a unified theory and practical toolset for adaptive representations, sampling and computational methods for high-dimensional data that feature structured geometric and combinatorial foundations.
PhD Defense of Ahmet Alacaoglu
On 25th August 2021, Ahmet Alacaoglu, a PhD student at LIONS lab, successfully defended his PhD thesis. The thesis, entitled "Adaptation in Stochastic Algorithms: From Nonsmooth Optimization to Min-Max Problems and Beyond" was supervised by Prof. Volkan Cevher.
