JOSA TechTalks: State of the Art Machine Learning

Apr 10, 2018 · Amman, Jordan

Machine learning is a quickly evolving domain due to the fast progress of the techniques used and the huge computing power that's easily available for everyone to use.

In this talk, Sami Abu-El-Haija from Google Research will be giving an overview of modern machine learning algorithms and the state-of-the-art in various ML domains including computer vision, natural language understanding and graph-structured data.
Sami will touch on how someone can train a state-of-the-art machine learning model using modern technologies (specifically using TensorFlow).

Knowledge of matrix calculus, optimization theory, and programming is not required but is nice to have.
