Topic: Regularized Deep Learning with Geometry and Structures
Speaker: Dr. Qiang Qiu, Assistant Professor (Electrical and Computer Engineering Department, Duke University)
Date: May 17, 14:00-16:00
Venue: The 1st Conference Room, New Main Building
The central problem of deep learning is how to generalize well from training data to unseen data. One such solution is to regularize deep learning with priors encoded into models. In this talk, the speaker will discuss various techniques recently developed in regularizing deep learning with geometry, such as low-rank subspace and low-dimensional manifold, or structures over convolutional filters, nodes, and networks. The speaker will present numerous applications in cross-spectral face recognition, image hashing, object recognition, object localization, person re-identification, and privacy preservation.
