EXPERTS ON THE DEEP LEARNING SUMMIT AGENDA


We asked a few of the expert speakers their thoughts on the key factors that have enabled recent advancements in deep learning:
  • Charlie Tang, Research Scientist at Apple: I think the availability of compute in the form of GPUs and the availability of datasets/simulators have led to the recent advancements
  • Carl Vondrick, PhD Student at MIT: The availability and the capability to process massive annotated datasets as well as the understanding of how to use large-scale data.
  • Dilip Krishnan, Research Scientist at Google: Better optimization methods (Adam, AdaDelta) and better tools (e.g. Tensorflow, distributed model training) have played a role in allowing for more efficient engineering.

EXPERTS ON THE DEEP LEARNING IN HEALTHCARE AGENDA


We asked the speakers what deep learning advancements in healthcare would they hope to see in the next 3 years?:
  • Daniel Golden, Machine Learning Lead at Arterys: Recent work on deep learning-based image captioning and text-based image retrieval gives me hope that we’ll soon be able to combine all sources of a patient’s electronic medical record data into one beautiful and efficient model; the most accurate predictive model will surely be the one that can understand the electronic medical record in its entirety.
  • Avanti Shrikumar, PhD Student at Stanford University: I hope to see a lot more intelligent customization of deep learning methods to genomics. My lab recently put out a preprint on accounting for the fact that DNA is double-stranded in our deep learning models - pretty much the simplest domain-specific modification you can think of. We hope it is the first of many in the years to come.
