18th Machine Learning Meetup: Yoshua Bengio at UCL

Apr 15, 2015 · Greater London, United Kingdom

Happy to announce the next Machine Learning Meetup with Yoshua Bengio, Full Professor of the Department of Computer Science and Operations Research, head of the Machine Learning Laboratory (LISA), CIFAR Program co-director of the CIFAR Neural Computation and Adaptive Perception program, Canada Research Chair in Statistical Learning Algorithms, and he also holds the NSERC-Ubisoft industrial chair. 
Talk Synopsis:
Deep Learning Theory
Although neural networks have long been considered lacking in theory and much remains to be done, theoretical evidence is mounting and will be discussed, to support distributed representations, depth of representation, the non-convexity of the training objective, and the probabilistic interpretation of learning algorithms (especially of the auto-encoder type, which were lacking one). The talk will focus on the intuitions behind these theoretical results.
6.00: Welcome, pizzas, beers and networking (more to be confirmed soon)
6.30: Talk (more to be confirmed soon)
