Deep Learning Theory Team
Generic Technology Research Group
RIKEN Center for Advanced Intelligence Project
(Team Leader: Taiji Suzuki)
Deep Learning Theory Team is studying various kinds of learning systems including deep learning from theoretical viewpoints. We enrich our understandings of complex learning systems, and leverage the insights to construct new machine learning techniques and apply them. Especially, machine learning should deal with high dimensional and complicated data, and thus we are studying deep learning and structured sparse learning as methods to deal with such complicated data. Moreover, we are also developing efficient optimization algorithms for large and complicated machine learning problems based on such techniques as stochastic optimization.

Research Scientist or Senior Research Scientist: 1 position
The position at the time of hiring will be determined through the selection process.
The candidate will focus on the development of theories of several machine learning problems including deep learning. More concretely, the candidate will work on analyzing theories such as approximation theory and generalization error analysis for several machine learning methodologies including deep learning, developing a new method based on theories, and developing optimization methods such as stochastic optimization for efficiently executing optimization problems that appear in machine learning problems. The candidate is expected to carry out research and publish their findings in top machine-learning conferences or top statistics journals.
The successful candidate is expected to conduct research and development on topics specified above and to contribute to the management of the laboratory. Senior Research Scientist is also expected to assist the laboratory head.
