In collaboration with IMANDRA (www.imandra.ai), we are developing a neural network verification library in the language Imandra. This week, this work was accepted for publication: R. Desmartin, G. Passmore E. Komendantskaya and M. Daggitt: CheckINN: Wide Range Neural Network Verification in Imandra. 24th International Symposium on Principles and Practice of Declarative Programming PPDP’22.

Conference Mathematics of Program Construction, MPC22
We are organising a conference Conference Mathematics of Program Construction, MPC22. Please consider contributing a paper there! The deadline is the 17th April 2022. More information is available on the conference website.
Open PhD post at LAIV and Heriot-Watt
We are looking to hire a new PhD student (fees and stipend covered), to work on verification or semantics of intelligent systems. Please contact email@example.com if you are interested.
LAIV at POPL’22
Matthew Daggitt is giving an invited talk at WITS 2022, the first Workshop on the Implementation of Type Systems.
HAPPY news, the paper by LAIV PhD student Daniel Kienitz et co The Effect of Manifold Entanglement and Intrinsic Dimensionality on Learning has been accepted to the AAAI’22. It is a great success, and totally deserved! Many congratulations, Daniel!
MSc student success
LAIV MSc students Michael, Remi and Dan all got high As for their dissertations. Remi in addition received the best MSc dissertation award -2021! Many congratulations to all!
