Learning from ranks, learning to rank
Abstract [slides]
Permutations and sorting operators are ubiquitous in data science, e.g., when one wants to analyze or predict preferences. As discrete combinatorial objects, permutations do not lend themselves easily to differential calculus, which underpins much of modern machine learning. In this talk I will present several approaches to embed permutations to a continuous space, on the one hand, and to relax the ranking operator to be differentiable, on the other hand, in order to integrate permutations, sorting and ranking operators in differentiable architecture for machine learning.
