The Summer Schools in Logic and Learning bring together two annual summer schools in the area of logic and machine learning: the Logic Summer School and the Machine Learning Summer School. The summer schools will be hosted by the Computer Sciences Laboratory in the Research School of Information Sciences and Engineering at The Australian National University, from the 26 January to 6 February 2009.
The Logic courses will consist of short courses on aspects of pure and applied logic. The Machine Learning courses will consist of short courses on the theory and practice of machine learning, which combine deep theory from areas as diverse as Statistics, Mathematics, Engineering, and Information Technology with many practical and relevant real life applications. The courses will be taught by experts from Australia and overseas. The summer schools this year will also include a special track on Artificial Intelligence (AI), which will feature courses on aspects of both logic and machine learning.
The Logic courses will be held at the Psychology G6 lecture theatre, and the Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence courses will be held at the Physics lecture theatre at the ANU. In addition to the scheduled courses, time will be set aside each day for practical classes, discussions and software demonstrations.
