Tutorial: Introduction to Reinforcement Learning with Function Approximation

Tutorial: Introduction to Reinforcement Learning with Function Approximation

1 year ago
Reinforcement learning is a body of theory and techniques for optimal sequential decision making developed in the last thirty years primarily within the machine learning and operations research communities, and which has separately become important in psychology and neuroscience. This tutorial will develop an intuitive understanding of the underlying formal problem (Markov decision processes) and […]

Tutorial: Deep Learning

1 year ago
Deep Learning allows computational models composed of multiple processing layers to learn representations of data with multiple levels of abstraction. These methods have dramatically improved the state-of-the-art in speech recognition, visual object recognition, object detection, and many other domains such as drug discovery and genomics. Deep learning discovers intricate structure in large datasets by using […]

Tutorial: Monte Carlo Inference Methods

1 year ago
Monte Carlo methods use random sampling to understand a system, estimate averages, or compute integrals. Monte Carlo methods were amongst the earliest applications run on electronic computers in the 1940s, and continue to see widespread use and research as our models and computational power grow. In the NIPS community, random sampling is widely used within […]

Tutorial: Large-Scale Distributed Systems for Training Neural Networks

1 year ago
Over the past few years, we have built large-scale computer systems for training neural networks, and then applied these systems to a wide variety of problems that have traditionally been very difficult for computers. We have made significant improvements in the state-of-the-art in many of these areas, and our software systems and algorithms have been […]
Language-Integrated Quantum Operations Tutorial

Language-Integrated Quantum Operations Tutorial

1 year ago
The Language-Integrated Quantum Operations is a software architecture and tool suite for quantum computing. It includes a programming language, optimization and scheduling algorithms, and quantum simulators and can be used to translate a quantum algorithm written in the form of a high-level program into the low-level machine instructions for a quantum device. It is developed […]
Irides: Attaining Quality, Responsiveness and Mobility for Virtual Reality Head-mounted Displays

Irides: Attaining Quality, Responsiveness and Mobility for Virtual Reality Head-mounted Displays

1 year ago
In this video, we present Irides, a stereo HMD system that simultaneously attains quality, responsiveness and mobility. Irides achieves this by offloading rendering work to a (possibly WAN) high-end GPU. The HMD client is mobile and only requires a wireless network connection, yet receives high quality and responsive visuals. Irides leverages prior work to overcome […]

CNTK: Microsoft’s Open-Source Deep-Learning Toolkit

1 year ago
Speaker: Frank Seide This talk will introduce CNTK, Microsoft’s cutting-edge open-source deep-learning toolkit for Windows and Linux. CNTK is a computation-graph based deep-learning toolkit for training and evaluating deep neural networks. Microsoft product groups use CNTK, for example to create the Cortana speech models and web ranking. CNTK supports feed-forward, convolutional, and recurrent networks for […]
Artificial Intelligence – Microsoft Perspectives

Artificial Intelligence – Microsoft Perspectives

1 year ago
Given the investment and evidence of progress in Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the last five years, some suggest that it is merely a matter of time until AI matches, complements or surpasses, human intelligence. Artificial Intelligence at Microsoft is about augmenting human abilities and experiences and having humans and machine collaborate as teams in a […]
