Neural Networks (also known as Deep Learning) are biologically inspired machine learning models. In this talk, I will explain what neural networks are, how they work, and how they were used to achieve the recent record-breaking performance on speech recognition and visual object recognition.
I received my PhD in 2012 from the University of Toronto working with Geoffrey Hinton. After a brief postdoc with Andrew Ng, I cofounded DNNResearch with Geoffrey Hinton and Alex Krizhevsky, which was acquired by Google from stealth mode. I am interested in all aspects of neural networks and their applications.
