IHP just organized a series of talks within what they call the nexus trimester whuch had a focus on Inference Problems -the whole playlist is here-. Here are a few presentations related to the theme of Nuit Blanche.
From Pigeons to Fano, and beyond, Suresh Venkatasubramanian
Abstract: Fano's inequality can be viewed as capturing a deep interplay between information and computation. It links storage, reconstruction and transmission in one inequality, generalizing arguments as simple as the pigeonhole principle, and leading us to inequalities by Assouad and LeCam. In this presentation I'll explain how Fano's inequality gets used to reason about data structures, statistics and inference.
