Deep Learning of Representations

Google Tech Talk 11/13/2012 Presented by Yoshua Bengio ABSTRACT Yoshua Bengio will give an introduction to the area of Deep Learning, to which he has been one of the leading contributors. It is aimed at learning representations of data, at multiple levels of abstraction. Current machine learning algorithms are highly dependent on feature engineering (manual design of the representation fed as input to a learner), and it would be of high practical value to design algorithms that can do good feature learning. The ideal features are disentangling the unknown underlying factors that generated the data. It has been shown both through theoretical arguments and empirical studies that deep architectures can generalize better than too shallow ones. Since a 2006 breakthrough, a variety of learning algorithms have been proposed for deep learning and feature learning, mostly based on unsupervised learning of representations, often by stacking single-level learning algorithms. Several of these algorithms are based on probabilistic models but interesting challenges arise to handle the intractability of the likelihood itself, and alternatives to maximum likelihoods have been successfully explored, including criteria based on purely geometric intutions about manifolds and the concentration of probability mass that characterize many real-world learning tasks. Representation-learning algorithms are being applied to many tasks in computer vision, natural language processing, speech <b>...</b>

NIPS 2011 Big Learning - Algorithms, Systems, & Tools Workshop: Machine Learning...

Big Learning Workshop: Algorithms, Systems, and Tools for Learning at Scale at NIPS 2011 Invited Talk: Machine Learning and Hadoop by Josh Wills Abstract: We'll review common use cases for machine learning and advanced analytics found in our customer base at Cloudera and ways in which Apache Hadoop supports these use cases. We'll then discuss upcoming developments for Apache Hadoop that will enable new classes of applications to be supported by the system.
