Curious about artificial intelligence? Interested in learning more? Join the growing AI community each Wednesday over lunch to hear more about this transformative field!
On Wednesday, Oct. 28 at noon, Razvan Pascanu of DeepMind will present "Discussion on Continual Learning and Learning Dynamics for Deep Networks" during the weekly AI Lunch Series. This session is open to the public.
Abstract: I will begin with a brief introduction to open problems in understanding neural networks and discuss several approaches. Furthermore, I will discuss the importance of continual learning in the field. Continual Learning (sometimes called life-long learning, never-ending learning or open-ended learning) is a topic that has been growing in popularity the last few years. I will provide an overview of the problem, contrasting sequential learning to multi-task learning and highlight why multi-task learning can be in practice sub-optimal. I will discuss the main family of approaches to continual learning and discuss recent research in the field. Finally, I will provide a few ideas of where the field might go in the near future and open the floor for discussion.
