Graduate Pizza Seminar

Machine Learning for Humans and Robots*

Joel Clingempeel -- Rutgers University

Location:  GSL
Date & time: Friday, 05 October 2018 at 1:40PM - 2:40PM

Abstract: Artificial intelligence has long been a source of fascination and has progressed from science fiction to being central to many technologies. In recent years, progress in artificial intelligence has accelerated tremendously thanks to the paradigm of machines being programmed with the ability to learn from experience, and this has led to breakthroughs in the news such as AlphaGo beating the world Go champion and Watson's dominance in Jeopardy. In this talk, I'll first illustrate many of the core principles behind machine learning through the lens of one of the simplest models: regression. I'll then give an introduction to neural networks: a power model which is loosely based on the brain architecture and which has had incredible success in tasks ranging from image recognition to language processing.

*This talk is open to both humans and robots; the speaker shall not discriminate on the basis of one's ability to pass a Turing test.
