Weekly Seminar – 1/20/2017 – Deep Learning #1

We’re starting with our new format of talks, for the semester. The first mini-series of talks will be on Deep Learning (by popular vote), and will be initiated by Qi Xiao from Dr. Wang’s group.

She will be giving an introduction to deep learning, including typical models like feedforward neural networks and the back-propagation algorithm. She will also briefly talk about deep learning applications.

Slides: Introduction to Deep Learning

1. Chapter 6, Deep Learning, by Ian Goodfellow and Yoshua Bengio and Aaron Courville
2. UFLDL Tutorial

The tentative plan for the next four weeks is to cover chapters 6,8,9,10,11 of the book. The schedule for speakers has been updated on the List of Talks page.

Date: 1/20/2017

Time: 3pm to 4pm

Venue: 3043 Coover Hall

Join us for a deep learning session on a topic that has been buzzing in our community for quite a while now! We also have medium roast coffee from Caribou Coffee to keep that buzz up. We’re pretty excited to see the way this new format of seminars shapes up, so your participation will be highly appreciated!
