Due to the current situation, the talk takes place **online**, via zoom. The meeting link has been sent out via the usual mailing lists; please contact the organisers if you have not received the email and would like to join the talk.

We introduce the Frank-Wolfe Algorithm, also known as Conditional Gradients. Recently, the algorithm has been revisited for various applications in machine learning. We motivate the Frank-Wolfe Algorithm and discuss the properties that make it appealing for practitioners.
