Lénaïc Chizat

I am a tenure track assistant professor at EPFL in the Institute of Mathematics, where I lead the DOLA chair (Dynamics Of Learning Algorithms).

Main research topics:

  • Continuous Optimization: gradient flows, algorithmic regularization, space of measures, interacting particle methods

  • Optimal Transport: extensions, statistical aspects, entropic regularization, applications to machine learning

  • Theory of deep learning and neural networks

Some resources

  • Invited blog post on Francis Bach's research blog, an overview of our recent results on the predictor learnt by two-layer neural networks.

  • Slides for the best paper award lecture at SIAM-IP 2022 about my research on sparse optimization on measures with overparamterized gradient descent.

  • Slides about estimating optimal transport with entropic regularization

  • Slides about infinitely wide two-layer neural networks
