With this ML Session series we intend to provide individual and independent lecture sessions on ML related topics.This time Prof. Dr. Ngoc Thang Vu will talk about "Neural Networks".
The lecture will address a bit of history, multilayer perceptron, backpropagation, different types of neural networks such as CNNs, vanille RNNs, RNNs with LSTMs and some current developments: Seq2seq with attention mechanism and generative adversarial networks (GANs)
The next sessions will take place:
Jan 15, 2019, 2pm: Kernel Methods (B. Haasdonk)
Feb 5, 2019, 2pm: Gaussian Processes (M. Toussaint)
