At October 19-20, head of the Deep Learning and Bayesian Methods laboratory Dmitry Vetrov took part in the forum on artificial intelligence at the headquarters of the corporation Samsung.
In this specialization the listeners will complete the courses on deep learning, Bayesian methods, reinforcement learning, natural language processing etc. Alexander Novikov, research fellow of the laboratory, is a lecturer of Bayesian Methods course.
On September 12 and 13, a mini-workshop "Stochastic processes and probabilistic models in machine learning" was held at the faculty. Four invited foreign specialists gave lectures about the application of parametric and nonparametric probabilistic methods in machine learning, and representatives of Russian scientific groups told about particular projects where these approaches are used.
Bayesian Methods in Deep Learning Summer School was held in Moscow fron 26 to 30 August. During these five days 96 participants from 8 countries listened to lectures about Bayesian methods in deep learning and trained neural networks.
Michael Fugurnov's paper written in collaboration with researchers from Google, Carnegie Mellon University and Dmitry Vetrov has been presented on Computer Vision and Pattern Recognition. The conference was held from 21 to 26 July in Honolulu, USA.
Dmitry Vetrov, head of the laboratory, held a meeting with Mr. Shi-Hwa Lee, a Vice-President of Samsung, a company the laboratory collaborates with. Interim research results, internship possibilities and collaboration perspectives were discussed.
