Master’s Programme 'Statistical Learning Theory'

This new joint programme trains the next generation of scientists to effectively carry out fundamental research and work on new challenging problems in statistical learning theory. This field is at the cutting edge of various disciplines of mathematics and computer science. It is one of the most dynamic areas of modern science, encompassing mathematical statistics, machine learning, optimization, and information and complexity theory. From the start of the programme, students collaborate in thematic working groups and actively participate in research, learning from HSE and Skoltech scientists as well as leading global specialists in statistics, optimization and machine learning.
