A Path To Unsupervised Learning Through Adversarial Networks - (Soumith Chintala, Researcher at Facebook AI Research)
Soumith Chintala is a Researcher at Facebook AI Research, where he works on deep learning, reinforcement learning, generative image models, agents for video games and large-scale high-performance deep learning. He holds a Masters in CS from NYU, and spent time in Yann LeCun's NYU lab building deep learning models for pedestrian detection, natural image OCR, depth-images among others.
Soumith will go over generative adversarial networks, a particular way of training neural networks to build high quality generative models. The talk will take you through an easy to follow timeline of the research and improvements in adversarial networks, followed by some future directions, as well as applications.
