CBMM Panel Discussion: Is the theory of Deep Learning relevant to applications?

October 27, 2020 - 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Panelists: Tomaso A Poggio (CBMM), Daniela L Rus (CSAIL), Max Tegmark (Physics), Lorenzo Rosasco (IIT), and Andrea Tacchetti (DeepMind)


Abstract: Deep Learning has enjoyed an impressive growth over the past few years in fields ranging from visual recognition to natural language processing. Improvements in these areas have been fundamental to the development of self-driving cars, machine translation  and healthcare applications. This progress has arguably been made possible by a combination of increases in computing power and clever heuristics, raising puzzling questions that lack full theoretical understanding. Here, we will discuss the relationship between the theory behind deep learning and its application.

This panel discussion will be hosted remotely via Zoom.
