Cornet Seminar – 23/02/2024

The next seminar of the Cornet team will take place on February 23, 2024, at 11:35 a.m. in S3, and will consist of two parts.

First, Sylvie Chaddad (LIA) will present her thesis topic on Stochastic Control for Optimizing Crowdfunding Project Dynamics.

Then, Lorena Garrido (University of Veracruz) will present her work titled On the Monge-Kantorovich divergence.

Abstract: The Monge-Kantorovich divergence is a measure of closeness between probability distributions. Historically, it arises from an optimal transport problem of sand movement, in the area of civil engineering. Today, the Monge-Kantorovich problem has given rise to many theoretical studies, as well as various applications, including data analysis. In this talk, a couple of applications in data analysis will be mentioned.
