Representation Learning

Workshop | March 27 – 31, 2017 every day |  Calvin Laboratory (Simons Institute for the Theory of Computing)

 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...   More >
