About MLSS:
Machine Learning Summer School (MLSS) is a course about modern methods of statistical machine learning and inference. It presents topics which are at the core of modern machine learning, from fundamentals to state-of-the-art practice.
The Machine Learning Summer School is an event series started at the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems in Tübingen, Germany, in 2002. Its organizers noticed that while many students are keen to learn about machine learning only few machine learning courses are taught at universities. By now, more than 30 editions have taken place in Europe, Asia and the Americas. For the first time, the Machine Learning Summer School is coming to Eastern Europe.
MLSS will take place at the heart of Moscow's Skolkovo Innovation Center – Skoltech Institute of Science and Technology. Skoltech was created during 2011 in collaboration with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Central to the campus are its multi-story laboratories that accommodate lab space, work and teaching areas, as well as the associated offices, which include 12 laboratory buildings within the insitute.
Moscow is the capital of Russia and one of the largest cities in Europe. A historic center with modern infrastructure easily reachable from all major cities of Russia by air or train travel. Located on the river Moskva, in the west of the country, Moscow's landmarks include the Red Square, the Bolshoi Theatre, the Gorky Park, VDNH and the Tretyakov gallery. Moscow is an excellent destination to visit regardless whether you are on business or holiday travel.
