Applied Probability Days 2021 was a virtual event held July 7-9, 2021 (Wednesday-Friday).

The speakers were:

  • John Duchi (Stanford University): On the intersection between privacy, statistical inference, and optimality
  • Jevgenijs Ivanovs (Aarhus University): Implementable coupling of a Lévy process and a Brownian motion
  • Claudia Klüppelberg (Technical University of Munich): Conditional independence in max-linear Bayesian networks: impact graphs, source graphs, and ﹡-dependence
  • Laurent Massoulié (INRIA Paris and Microsoft Research-INRIA Joint Centre): Partial alignment of sparse random graphs
  • Gareth Roberts (University of Warwick): Limits of simulated and parallel tempering schemes in high dimensions
  • Devavrat Shah (MIT): Causal tensor estimation
  • Ben Van Roy (Stanford University): Simple agent, complex environment: efficient reinforcement learning with agent states
  • Garrett van Ryzin (Amazon): Labor cost free-riding in the gig economy
  • Mengdi Wang (Princeton University): Compressive state representation learning towards small-data RL applications
