Talk: Memory-based Bayesian Reasoning and Deep Learning

Talk: Memory-based Bayesian Reasoning and Deep Learning
A talk that explores the convergence of deep learning and Bayesian inference.  We'll take a statistical tour of deep learning, think about approximate Bayesian inference, and explore the idea of doing inference-with-memory and the different ways that this manifests itself in contemporary machine learning. Slides See the slides using this link. Abstract Deep learning and Bayesian ...
