We're happy to announce that the French mathematician Stéphane Mallat is appointed Professor at the Collège de France as of January 2018 on the Data Science Chair. He will hold his inaugural lecture on January 11th and give a lecture course entitled "Learning and the Curse of Dimensionality".
Collège de France is a public higher education institution, founded in 1530 by Francis I. It is unique in France and has no equivalent abroad. It is structured around chairs and has a two-fold mission: to be a forum for cutting-edge research and teaching.
