Seminar on AlphaTensor – Francisco Ruiz (Google DeepMind)

We were honored to host Francisco Ruiz, Research Scientist @ Google DeepMind, for an online seminar on AlphaTensor, last Tuesday 05/12 evening.

AlphaTensor is a Deep Reinforcement Learning agent designed to automatically discover fast algorithms for matrix multiplication, a mathematical operation ubiquitous in science and engineering. It discovered new improved algorithms, with heavy impact on theory and practice.
Francisco spoke about its development and shared firsthand insights into its design.
