Event description

Description

UPC TelecomBCN and Barcelona Supercomputing Center have organised an open lecture in the framework of the Deep Learning for Artificial Intelligence course of Master MET and the Severo Ochoa Research Seminars. The lecture will be taught by Oriol Vinyals, UPC alumnus and currently a research scientist at Google Deepmind. Atendees are encouraged to watch (video) and read (slides) of introductory lecture to reinforcement learning by Xavier Giró. This master class will also include a prologue by Yannis Kalantidis from Facebook Research.



Schedule:

11:30 Yannis Kalantidis - Overview of deep learning at Facebook Research

12:00 Oriol Vinyals - Latest advances in Reinforcement Learning at Google Deepmind

13:00 Open discussion

13:30 End of the lecture

You are invited to prepare this lectures beforehand with the course material available online at:

The organisers may limit the access to the room only to ticket holders.



Deep Learning for the AI Industry

Deep learning is powering a transformation in computational sciences and its industry. The classic paradigm of humans programming the computational operations is challenged today by neural networks capable of self-tunning based on large amounts of sensor data or simulated actions. The outstanding results in challenges such as computer vision or natural language is expanding to multiple other fields such as genomics, autonomous driving or energy management. This seminar presents the perspective from two leading labs, Google Deepmind and Facebook Research, that represent the currently vitality of the sector and the experience of open research from industry.


Oriol Vinyals is a Research Scientist at Google DeepMind, working on Deep Learning. Oriol holds a Ph.D. in EECS from University of California, Berkeley, a Masters degree from University of California, San Diego, and a double degree in Mathematics and Telecommunication Engineering from UPC, Barcelona. He is a recipient of the 2011 Microsoft Research PhD Fellowship. He was an early adopter of the new deep learning wave at Berkeley, and in his thesis he focused on non-convex optimization and recurrent neural networks. At Google DeepMind he continues working on his areas of interest, which include artificial intelligence, with particular emphasis on machine learning, language, and vision.


Yannis Kalantidis is a research scientist at Facebook Research in Menlo Park, California. He grew up in Athens, Greece and lived there till 2015, with brief breaks in Sweden, Catalonia and the United States. He got his PhD in November 2014 from the National Technical University of Athens in Greece under the supervision of Dr. Yannis Avrithis. He worked for two years at Yahoo Research in San Francisco, where he led the visual similarity search project at Flickr. He is currently conducting research and development on video and multi-modal representations, web-scale classification with noisy labels and modeling of vision and language.
