While I am not following the International Congress of Mathematicians which just started in Rio, and even less attending, I noticed an entry on their webpage on my friend and colleague Maria Esteban which I would have liked to repost verbatim but cannot figure how. (ICM 2018 also features a plenary lecture by Michael Jordan on gradient based optimisation [which was also Michael’s topic at ISBA 2018] and another one by Sanjeev Arora on the maths deep learning, two talks broadly related with statistics, which is presumably a première at this highly selective maths conference!)
