Seminario: “Learning for structures: advances for efficient recursive and deep approaches”

Giovedì 4 Aprile 2019, ore 17:00 - Aula 1BC45 - Alessio Micheli


Giovedì 4 Aprile 2019 alle ore 17:00 in Aula 1BC45, Alessio Micheli (Computational Intelligence & Machine Learning Group (CIML), University of Pisa) terrà un seminario dal titolo “Learning for structures: advances for efficient recursive and deep approaches”.

Moving to Structured Domains (SD - sequences, trees and graphs data) is a mainstream in the current evolution of Neural Networks and Machine Learning, which is rooted in foundational works developed in the last 20 years. Recent advancements which still is accompanying the current “deep learning revolution” are often at the price of high computation cost, empathizing the need of efficient approaches.
We will use results from my research group to show how we can move toward deep and efficient approaches for SD (both for sequences, trees and graphs) and, more in general, to show the many potential benefits in the extension and analysis of the impact of deep approaches for SD.
