Workshop | March 27 – 31, 2017 every day | Calvin Laboratory (Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing)
This workshop will focus on dramatic advances in representation and learning taking place in natural language processing, speech and vision. For instance, deep learning can be thought of as a method that combines the tasks of finding a classifier (which we can think of as the top layer of the deep net) with the task of learning a representation (namely, the representation computed at the...

Joseph Kott, Transportation Choices for Sustainable Communities; Michael Kodama, Eco-Rapid Transit
Transit-oriented development (TOD) has emerged as a powerful, effective way to integrate land use and public transit. TOD done right links smart growth and sustainability with higher capacity rail or bus transit services. This linkage takes place in the environs of the rail passenger station or the bus rapid transit stop. TOD concentrates workplaces, residences, and supporting retail services... More >
The course is intended for planning staff in local, regional, and state agencies as well as consultants. Community planners, public transit planners, transportation planners, traffic engineers, urban designers, land developers, and decision-makers will al
