The Kantorovich Initiative is dedicated towards research and dissemination of modern mathematics of optimal transport towards a wide audience of researchers, students, industry, policy makers and the general public.

The group was convened by Young-Heon Kim (University of British Columbia), Soumik Pal (University of Washington) and Brendan Pass (University of Alberta), with support from the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.

The second Kantorovich Initiative Retreat will take place on Thursday February 2nd, 2023 in Zillow Commons, 4th floor, Gates Center. This is in collaboration with UW Institute for Foundations in Machine Learning (IFML).

KI retreats are local one day conferences where KI members and their research groups get together to socialize and discuss potential collaborations.
