V Workshop on Dynamical Systems and Brain-Inspired Information Processing: July 29-31, 2019, A704

This workshop focuses on data-driven approaches to machine/statistical learning  based on exploiting dynamical systems, sometimes brain-inspired, to perform complex computational and information processing tasks.  Various mathematical connections have already been established between dynamical systems and the classical concept of Turing computability, but it is not clear whether this notion is the most adequate  from a dynamical systems perspective.

This workshop will explore mathematical and physical-realization aspects of information processing with dynamical systems and their potential applications. The aim is to gather researchers with different background interested in these topics and to seed discussions (and possible future collaborations) between communities working on different aspects of dynamical systems theory, machine/statistical learning, physics, and also those concerned about applications.

Contributions to the workshop cover topics including:

  • reservoir computing approaches
  • nonlinear dynamical systems and phenomena that can be used for information processing and storing
  • time series modeling and forecasting with novel machine learning techniques
  • specific applications in finance, physiological signals treatment, computational modeling of complex molecular systems
  • hardware implementation of machine learning paradigms based on dynamical systems

This workshop is the fifth in a series with this name. The first two were held in 2012 and 2015 in Besançon (France),  the third one in 2017 in Brussels (Belgium), and the fourth one in 2017 in Konstanz.
