Deep Learning

I haven't written this short description yet... but you're probably familiar with deep learning.

  • Massive Datasets and Generalization in ML
    Big, publically available datasets are great. Yet many practitioners who seek to use models pretrained on this data need to ask themselves how informative the data is likely to be for their purposes. Dataset bias and task specificity are important factors to keep in mind.
  • DeepMind's AlphaZero and The Real World
    Using DeepMind's AlphaZero AI to solve real problems will require a change in the way computers represent and think about the world. In this post, we discuss how abstract models of the world can be used for better AI decision making and discuss recent work of ours that proposes such a model for the task of navigation.
  • The Importance of Simulation in the Age of Deep Learning
    An overview of the significance of simulation tools in the field of robotics and the promise and limitations of photorealistic simulators.
  • Practical Guidelines for Getting Started with Machine Learning
    The potential advantages of AI are many, and using machine learning to accelerate your business may outweigh potential pitfalls. If you are looking to use machine learning tools, here are a few guidelines you should keep in mind.
  • For AI, translation is about more than language
    Translation is about expressing the same underlying information in different ways, and modern machine learning is making incredibly rapid progress in this space.
  • Bias in AI Happens When We Optimize the Wrong Thing
    Bias is a pervasive problem in AI. Only by discouraging machine learning systems from exploiting a certain bias can we expect such a system to avoid doing so.
  • My Favorite Deep Learning Papers of 2017
    Here are five deep learning papers I felt rose above the rest in 2017.
