Multi Armed Bandit Workshop

Date: 25th-26th September 2o19

Location: Imperial College London

The Statistics group at the Department of Mathematics at Lancaster University and Google Deepmind will be holding a specialist workshop on multi-armed bandits in London on the 25th and 26th of September.

The multi-armed bandit problem has become classic because it is well suited for modelling many real world problems while being amenable to theoretical analyses due to its simplicity. Researchers from different fields, especially statistics, operational research, applied probability and computer science, have made theoretical contributions that in the recent years started gaining wider popularity in practice.

This workshop will provide a forum for stimulating discussions, especially across the boundaries between computer science, statistics and operations research.
