NIPS Tutorial Synposis


Sam Witteveen and I started the TensorFlow and Deep Learning Singapore group on MeetUp in February 2017, and the eleventh MeetUp, aka TensorFlow and Deep Learning: NIPS review, was again hosted by Google Singapore.

The line-up of talks included :

  • My talk on 'Practice and Trends' (which was a condensed version of the first Tutorial session by Oriol Vinyals and Scott Reed);
  • Olzhas describing Capsule Networks using an extensive deck;
  • Chaitanya (a researcher from EPFL, now at SAP via NTU) presenting "Personalization in Goal-Oriented Dialog", a paper which he co-wrote and was featured in the NIPS Conversational Agents Workshop; and
  • Sam looking at the developments in the space of ML that creates other ML models (eg: AutoML).

I didn't present the paper that Sam and I had at the NIPS ViGiL workshop, since the code there was rather too PyTorch-y to show at Google offices...
