1QBit is proud to sponsor the West Coast Optimization Meeting (WCOM) to be held on October 1, 2016 at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver. The meeting takes place twice a year and brings together researchers and practitioners interested in the theory and applications of optimization. WCOM has a long tradition of being small, informal, informative, and free for attendees. Notable speakers this fall include John Duchi from the Department of Computer Science at Stanford. John is known for, among other things, the AdaGrad algorithm which has some intriguing theoretical properties and is one of the most popular stochastic gradient variants for training deep neural networks.
