Deep Learning State of the Art


Sam Witteveen and I started the TensorFlow and Deep Learning Singapore group on MeetUp in February 2017, and the twenty-ninth MeetUp was hosted by Google Singapore, and was a theory-heavy recap of highlights from the NeurIPS conference held at the end of December.

My talk addressed several hot topics in current Deep Learning research :

  • "Deep Learning" vs "Good Old-Fashioned AI" : as represented by "The Debate" between Gary Marcus and Yoshua Bengio
  • Some major areas addressed in Yoshua Bengio's Keynote presentation at the conference :
    • Attention, Representations and Symbols
    • Causality
    • Consciousness Prior and Losses
  • A quick overview of "The Book of Why" by Judea Pearl, including the three stages of causal reasoning
