  • Can we Contain Covid-19 without Locking-down the Economy? 

    Shalev-Shwartz, Shai; Shashua, Amnon (Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), 2020-03-26)
    We present an analysis of a risk-based selective quarantine model where the population is divided into low and high-risk groups. The high-risk group is quarantined until the low-risk group achieves herd-immunity. We tackle ...
  • Stable Foundations for Learning: a foundational framework for learning theory in both the classical and modern regime. 

    Poggio, Tomaso (Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), 2020-03-25)
    We consider here the class of supervised learning algorithms known as Empirical Risk Minimization (ERM). The classical theory by Vapnik and others characterize universal consistency of ERM in the classical regime in which ...
  • Double descent in the condition number 

    Poggio, Tomaso; Kur, Gil; Banburski, Andrzej (Center for Brains, Minds and Machines (CBMM), 2019-12-04)
    In solving a system of n linear equations in d variables Ax=b, the condition number of the (n,d) matrix A measures how much errors in the data b affect the solution x. Bounds of this type are important in many inverse ...
