AI Lecture Series

Advances In Machine Learning & The Rebirth Of AI

Speaker : Prof. Utpal Garain

Date : July 20, 2018 (Friday at 6 PM - 7:30 PM)

Venue : J-3, Block-GP, Sector-V, Kolkata 700091


Details : This week on #AIFridays, we will have Prof Utpal Garain, Professor at Indian Statistical Institute, Kolkata.

Prof. Garain will discuss in brief on the backgrounds of learning algorithms & major breakthroughs that have been made in the field of machine perception in the last 50 yrs. He will also discuss the role of statistical algorithms like artificial neural network, support vector machines, and other concepts related to Deep Learning algorithms.

Along with the above, Prof. Garain will touch upon the basics of CNN & RNN, Long Short-Term Memory Networks (LSTM) & attention network & illustrate all of these using real-life problems. Several state-of-the-art problems like image captioning, visual question answering, medical image analysis etc. will be discussed to make the potential of deep learning algorithms understandable.

Prof. Utpal Garain is one of the leading minds in Kolkata in the field of Neural Networks & Artificial Intelligence. His research interest is now focused on AI research, especially exploring deep learning methods for language, image and video analysis including NLP tools, OCRs, handwriting analysis, computational forensics and the like.
