DaDaDa 2016: Felix Friedmann – Semantic Segmentation

Abstract:  With the rise of Deep Learning, paradigms have changed in several well-established fields of computer science. Algorithms that had been developed for decades were instantly outperformed by deep neural networks and often levels of performance were reached that seemed unimaginable. Computer Vision was one of the first areas that were conquered by Deep Learning. AlexNet, a deep Convolutional Neural[…]

DaDaDa 2016: Daniel Pettersson – Bayesian Semantics: Verb Sense Induction

Abstract: Bayesian models, such as topic modeling (LDA), have had enormous impact on natural language processing. Although deep neural architectures have improved performance on many tasks, there are still many problems that lend themselves best to a Bayesian treatment. In this talk, we will motivate and develop a Bayesian model for verb sense induction, based[…]

DaDaDa2016: Giuseppe Casaliccio – Introducing an R package to interface the OpenML platform 

Abstract: OpenML is an online machine learning platform where researchers can automatically log and share data, code, and experiments, and organize them online to work and collaborate more effectively. We present an R package to interface the OpenML platform and illustrate its usage both as a stand-alone package and in combination with the mlr machine[…]
