A New Benchmark and Progress Toward Improved Weakly Supervised Learning

Seminar: Redwood Seminar | September 26 | 12-1 p.m. | 560 Evans Hall


Russ Webb, Apple

Neuroscience Institute, Helen Wills


A primary goal of this work is to give a clear example of the limits of current, deep-learning techniques and suggest how progress can be made. The presentation will include a discussion of open questions, unpublished experiments, suggestions on how to make progress. This work is founded on the paper Knowledge Matters: Importance of Prior Information for Optimization by Gulcehre et. al., which...   More >



Repairing the brain after stroke: a biomaterials strategy

Seminar | September 26 | 12-1 p.m. | 106 Stanley Hall


Tatiana Segura, Duke University

Bioengineering (BioE)


Stroke is the leading cause of disability due to the brain’s limited capacity to regenerate damaged tissue. After stroke, an increased inflammatory and immune response coupled with severely limited angiogenesis and neuronal growth results in a stroke cavity devoid of normal brain tissue. However, stroke also induces the formation of a pro-repair/plastic region in the area adjacent to the stroke...   More >
