Improving Network Performance Through Endpoint Diagnosis

15 hours ago
“Components of networks, and by extension the internet can fail. Users of the network (clients) do not have access to the various components of this distributed system. Therefore, it is important to provide them with tools so that they are able to handle such failures. This can be achieved in two ways. First, by helping […]

Building a Machine that Can Learn to Understand, Reason and Learn

15 hours ago
My talk will first briefly review recent advances in memory augmented neural nets and then present my own contribution, Neural Semantic Encoders (NSE). With a special focus on NSE, I show that external memory in conjunction with attention mechanism are very useful in natural language understanding and reasoning. Particularly I will cover a set of […]

Privacy in the Internet (Without Giving up Everything Else)

2 weeks ago
“Using the Internet inherently entails privacy risks. Each packet, potentially carrying information that users would rather keep private, is exposed to a network infrastructure operated by a number of third parties the user may not trust and likely cannot even identify. In some cases, the user may not even trust the recipient. Techniques exist to […]

Scalable Systems for Fast and Easy Machine Learning

2 weeks ago
“Machine learning models trained on massive datasets power a number of applications; from machine translation to detecting supernovae in astrophysics. However the end of Moore’s law and the shift towards distributed computing architectures presents many new challenges for building and executing such applications in a scalable fashion. In this talk I will present my research […]

Automatic Speech Emotion Recognition Using Recurrent Neural Networks with Local Attention

2 weeks ago
Automatic emotion recognition from speech is a challenging task which significantly relies on the emotional relevance of specific features extracted from the speech signal. In this study, our goal is to use deep learning to automatically discover emotionally relevant features. It is shown that using a deep Recurrent Neural Network (RNN), we can learn both […]

Possible and Impossible Cells

2 weeks ago
Cells are the smallest complete units of self-replication, and all life is made up of them. It is becoming clear that cells are best studied as informational and computational units, not just physical machines. Many of the questions of interest to cell biologists fall into the general category of “how is this or that aspect […]
