New Developments in Machine Learning – Prof. Dr. Max Welling

Presentation by Prof. Dr. Max Welling, Professor of Machine Learning at the University of Amsterdam, at Textkernel’s conference Intelligent Machines and the Future of Recruitment on June 2nd in Amsterdam.

Due to increased compute power and large amounts of available data, machine learning is flourishing once again. In particular a technology called deep learning is making great strides maturing into a powerful technology. Max Welling briefly discusses variants of deep learning, such as convolutional neural networks and recurrent neural networks. But what lies around the corner in machine learning? He will discuss the three developments that in his opinion will become increasingly important: Learning to interact with the world through reinforcement learning, Learning while respecting everyone’s privacy, and Learning the causal relations in data (as opposed to discovering mere correlations).

Together, they represent the “power tools” of the future machine learner.

    it could also be the case that black cars are harder to see so people see
    them too late.

  2. Dan Kelly says:

    If robots take over the world human society will be forced to treat each
    other equally and with respect.
