      High-Dimensional Statistical Learning Theory

      Description:High-dimensional statistical learning has become an increasingly important research area. In this course, we will provide theoretical foundations of high-dimensional learning for several widely studied problems with many applications. More specifically, we will review concentration inequalities, VC dimension, metric entropy and statistical implications, consider high-dimensional lin...
