Title:   Machine Learning at Google

Abstract:  There has been a lot of news about Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence in the news recently. Many of these are the result of real breakthrough in the field of ML and AI. We now have models that can recognize objects in a picture, translate documents from one language to another, or play a complicated game like Go or "Dota 2" as well as any human can. Most of these breakthroughs were made using "Deep Neural Networks", and in this talk, I will give a brief description of what they are and how these are being used at Google.


Refreshments will be available at 3:00 pm in HH/216
