Title: Machine Learning for Cognitive Analytics and Intelligent Applications
Speaker: Professor Steven Hoi, School of Information Systems (SIS), Singapore Management University (SMU), Singapore
Abstract: Recent years have witnessed the hype of AI and the booming advances of Machine Learning techniques that have influenced a wide range of real-world intelligent applications. In this talk I will introduce the fundamentals and frontiers of machine learning techniques, particularly for two kinds of machine learning techniques, online learning and deep learning. We will address open issues of large-scale machine learning techniques, especially online learning and deep learning, for a variety of cognitive analytics and intelligent application, particularly for image recognition, computer vision, cybersecurity analytics, and multimedia analytics, etc. Finally, I will also introduce job and internship opportunities for students who are looking for machine learning and deep learning job positions in both academia and AI industry.
