Dissertation Talk: End to End Learning in Autonomous Driving System

Seminar | December 16 | 2-3 p.m. | 405 Soda Hall

 Yang Gao, EECS Department

 Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences (EECS)

Autonomous driving has attracted a lot of attention in the past few years. A typical self-driving system needs manual design and coordination across multiple modules, such as perception, behavior prediction, planning and trajectory generation. Those manually designed information flow might be far from optimal. Deep learning has dramatically improved image recognition performance by replacing the...   More >

Seminar | December 18 | 12-1:30 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall

 Yubei Chen, EECS, UC Berkeley

 Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills

In this talk, I will first present a signal representation framework called the Sparse Manifold Transform that combines key ideas from sparse coding, manifold learning, and slow feature analysis. It turns non-linear transformations in the primary sensory signal space into linear interpolations in a representational embedding space while maintaining approximate invertibility. The sparse manifold...   More >
