After a great introductory talk on deep learning last week by Qi, Xiangyi Chen from Dr. Hong’s group will be presenting this week on optimization for neural networks (Chapter 8 of the Deep Learning book). The main focus of his talk will be on challenges in NN optimization, gradient based algorithms, the difference between training neural networks and pure optimization techniques.
Details for the seminar are as follows:
Date: Friday, 27th January 2017
Time: 3pm to 4pm
Venue: 2222, Coover Hall
