There is no fee to attend the meetup. We have limited (60 to 80) seats at the venue filled in First Come First Serve basis.

09:30 to 10:00 – Doors open, recap and networking.

10:00 – 11:15 – Title: Decoding Convolutional Neural Architectures

Lesson Detail

Convolutional neural architectures lie at the heart of the deep learning revolution witnessed over the past few years. The talk will trace the history of several convolutional neural architectures proposed for image, text and speech tasks. We will try to compare and understand how successive architectures try to overcome deficiencies of the earlier ones and incorporate new architectural patterns to improve performance.

Nishant Sinha is a Computer Science Researcher, Advisor and Mentor at Kena Labs. He is interested in designing AI systems spanning textual, vision and speech modes, based on deep learning and logical reasoning. Earlier at IBM Research, he architected a human-machine conversation system to enhance collaborative decision making in business environments. Previously at NEC Labs, he developed intelligent inference tools for software error diagnosis at industrial scale. His current focus is to advise companies and mentor individuals on deep learning technology and solutions. Nishant obtained his Ph.D in Symbolic Reasoning from Carnegie Mellon University and B. Tech. in Computer Science from IIT Kharagpur.
