Laurent Daudet, (LightOn CTO and Co-founder), Iacopo Poli (Lead ML at LightOn) and Florent Krzakala (consultant at LightOn and Co-founder), are currently at #NeurIPS2019 in Vancouver. One poster will feature some work performed with LightOn’s processing Unit and will be presented by Laurent or Iacopo.

The poster will be featured tomorrow Wednesday from 5–7pm @ East Exhibition Hall B+C#112 it is entitled “Don’t take it lightly: Phasing optical random projections with unknown operators”

The work was accomplished with Sidharth Gupta, Rémi Gribonval ( Inria/Université de Rennes), Laurent Daudet ( LightOn ) and Ivan Dokmanić (University of Illinois). Here is link to the attendant paper

Florent Krzakala will have one spotlight and four posters (all not directly related to current work at LightOn)
