Meet Peter Richtarik, KInIT external mentor

“I have been in a situation in which you wish to pursue your passion and you cannot find the right place in Slovakia and you’re facing a dilemma do I stay at home and perhaps not do exactly what I really wish to be doing with all my heart or do I go abroad but then I leave my close ones behind. If you are facing this dilemma I can give you an opportunity to stay at home and fulfill your passion at the same time.”

Meet Peter Richtarik, Professor of Computer Science & Mathematics at KAUST. Through his work on randomized and distributed optimization algorithms, he has contributed to the foundations of machine learning and federated learning.
