Deep Learning

Hugo Larochelle, Sauropod Vertebra Picture of the Week, Jan 23, 2014
Commentary by Stephen Downes

I spent the better part of the day Thursday watching Hugo Larochelle's presentation on deep learning. This is basically the use of neural networks to support unsupervised machine learning. The morning covered deep learning basics, and the afternoon looked at text analysis using deep learning. This was really good stuff. Some of the mathematics I couldn't follow, but I got the gist of most of it. And anyhow, he's placed a mountain of videos online. My photo is from my 'photo-a-day' set, newly revived for 2014.
