Tuesday, September 3, 2019 - 4:00pm
Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
The basic concepts of neural networks are introduced, with a focus on intuition. The simpler and widely used logistic regression model is introduced first, and from this the neural network is introduced as a generalization. Multilayered neural networks are introduced, yielding deep learning and its... Read More »

Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
The convolutional neural network (CNN) represents the current state-of-the-art for image and video analysis, and is increasingly used for analyzing time series and other data with spatial or sequential structure. This session will provide an intuitive introduction to the fundamentals of CNNs, with... Read More »

Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
Natural language processing (NLP) is a field focused on developing automated methods for analyzing text, and also for computer-driven text generation (synthesis, for example in translation). Neural networks have recently become the state-of-the-art method for NLP. In this session several neural NLP... Read More »

Reinforcement learning is a branch of machine learning, in which in algorithm learns a good policy for acting in an environment of interest, based on experience. When interacting with the environment, an agent (algorithm) experiences rewards or costs, based upon actions taken in particular... Read More »

Bostock Library - The Edge Workshop Room
Generative adversarial networks (GANs) are a new tool in machine learning, that leverage advances in deep neural networks. Using GANs, one can develop a computer model that is capable of synthesizing highly realistic images, such as human faces and interesting art. There are many applications of... Read More »

Penn Pavilion
We are pleased to announce the second annual Triangle Machine Learning Day, hosted by SAMSI at Penn Pavilion at Duke University. The event is part of SAMSI's 2019 Fall Program on Deep Learning and is modeled after similar events occurring in New York and Boston. The goal is to bring together... Read More »
