Artificial Neural Networks are machine-learning methods modeled on the human brain. In recent years, Deep Learning has revolutionized the training and interpretation of neural networks, and many people think Deep Learning is the next frontier in Artificial Intelligence. In this talk, I will give a practical introduction to neural networks and Deep Learning. I will also explain how Deep Learning gives some of the best-ever solutions to problems in computer vision, speech recognition, and natural language processing.
That supervised deep neural networks are powerful devices for predictive modeling is clear from their often state-of-the-art performance on image and speech data sets. They have also proven to be effective with text data sets, sometimes surprisingly so. In our talk we will present recent applications of neural networks to natural language processing tasks. Our goal is to explain both how these methods work and when one might want to use them.
