Welcome to the webpage of the Approximate Bayesian Inference Team @ RIKEN AIP.

Talk at IG4DS - "Information Geometry of Reversible Markov Chains" [ Slides ]
Tutorial at SMILES 2020: Learning with Bayesian Principles.
Tutorial at SMILES 2020: Sequential Prediction Problems.

Humans, animals, and other living beings have a natural ability to autonomously learn throughout their lives and quickly adapt to their surroundings, but computers lack such abilities. Our goal is to bridge such gaps between the learning of living-beings and computers. We are machine learning researchers with an expertise in areas such as approximate inference, Bayesian statistics, continuous optimization, information geometry, etc. We work on a variety of learning problems, especially those involving supervised, continual, active, federated, online, and reinforcement learning. Please check out research and publications pages for a more exhaustive overview.

Pierre will visit Toulouse School of Economics as an invited researcher in November. He will give a series of 5 lectures at on PAC-Bayes and Mutual Information bounds, on Nov. 8, 15, 21, 22 and 28. The lectures are intended for PhD students but will be also opened for master students. They will be essentially based on User-friendly introduction to PAC-Bayes bounds. He will also give the following talks:
