Rumen R Dangovski - Physics for AI Research at MIT

Greetings! I am Rumen, a PhD student at MIT working on machine learning with Professor Marin Soljačić.

My main interest is in improving machine learning through principles from fundamental science, especially physics.

I am currently focused on self-supervised and meta learning. For example, I study: why BYOL works, how to detach the pre-training process from the downstreat task, how to use the domain of physics as a testbed for self-supervised learning methods, how to make optimizers that optimize themselves, etc. Here you can find my research statement and CV.
