Details: Deep Learning, a subfield of Machine Learning is one of the few cutting-edge technologies that has gained tremendous momentum and received a lot of attention from both industry and academics all over the world. Firmly entrenched in the connectionist paradigm, the research and development activities in and around Deep Learning has evolved over a period of more than half century from simple Perceptrons to massively large-scale Convolutional and Recurrent networks, which has made a great many predictive, rich-media applications achieve near-human-level accuracy that was infeasible even a few years ago. In this meetup, we will trace the trajectory of the evolution of Deep Learning focusing on the computational and cognitive aspects of various Connectionist models.
