Machine Learning Seminar

Speaker: Jia Deng, University of Michigan

Title:  Teaching Computers to See and Think

Date: Mon, 22 Jan 2018, 2:15 pm – 3:15 pm
Type: Seminar
Location: 1400 BPS Bldg.

Abstract:
The ability to see and think is essential for AI. In this talk I will present my lab's recent work that aims to make computers see more and think better. First, I will describe our efforts to advance image understanding from isolated objects to rich relational semantics and from 2D to 3D. Next, I will present our work on using deep learning and vector embeddings to improve automated logical reasoning.
