讲座内容简介:

Due to improvements in mathematical formulas and increasingly powerful computers, we can now model many more layers of virtual neurons (deep neural networks or deep learning) than ever before. Deep learning is now producing many remarkable recent successes in computer vision, automatic speech recognition, natural language processing, audio recognition, and medical imaging processing. Although various deep learning architectures and novel algorithms have been applied to many big data applications, extending deep learning into more complicated applications such as bioinformatics or medical images will require more conceptual and software breakthroughs, not to mention many more advances in processing power. In this talk, I will outline the challenges and problems in deep learning research. They include design of new architectures, handling high dimensional data, encoding schemes, mathematical proofs, optimization of hyperparameters, logic and reasoning, result explanation and hardware support for deep learning. Some solutions and preliminary results in these areas will be presented.
