ML+X Forum: Representations for Learning

Machine Learning Community Event

Event Details

Tuesday, April 11, 2023
12-1 p.m.

How can researchers exploit the structure of their data to train more accurate and reliable deep learning models (e.g., via geometric deep learning which generalizes neural networks to Euclidean and non-Euclidean domains, such as graphs, manifolds, meshes, or string representations)? Similarly, how does the performance and design of different artificial neural network models (e.g., CNNs, vision transformers, CLIP) relate to a model’s learned feature representations? Do some models come closer to mirroring human visual representations than others, and can this observed relationship be exploited to develop better performing models?

These questions and more will be explored at April 11th’s ML+X forum, 12-1pm CT! Presenters include Daniel McNeela (Biomedical Data Science MS and incoming CS PhD student) and Kushin Mukherjee (Psychology PhD student)

1. Geometric Deep Learning for Molecules and Biological Networks — Daniel McNeela

2. Characterizing the Building Blocks of Human Perceptual Similarity in Abstract Drawings Using Deep Neural Networks — Kushin Mukherjee
