Probabilistic Modeling meets Deep Learning using TensorFlow Probability

Brian Patton (Google AI)

September 18 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm
E18-304

IDS.190 - Topics in Bayesian Modeling and Computation Speaker: Brian Patton (Google AI) Abstract: TensorFlow Probability provides a toolkit to enable researchers and practitioners to integrate uncertainty with gradient-based deep learning on modern accelerators. In this talk we'll walk through some practical problems addressed using TFP; discuss the high-level interfaces, goals, and principles of the library; and touch on some recent innovations in describing probabilistic graphical models. Time-permitting, we may touch on a couple areas of research interest for the…

Some New Insights On Transfer Learning

Samory Kpotufe (Columbia)

Abstract: The problem of transfer and domain adaptation is ubiquitous in machine learning and concerns situations where predictive technologies, trained on a given source dataset, have to be transferred to a new target domain that is somewhat related. For example, transferring voice recognition trained on American English accents to apply to Scottish accents, with minimal retraining. A first challenge is to understand how to properly model the ‘distance’ between source and target domains, viewed as probability distributions over a feature…
