Where: FCUL, C6.2.51

Abstract: Deep Learning is the hottest technique in the artificial intelligence field nowadays. Large multilayer neural networks are being developed to integrate intelligent systems in every domain of our lives, ranging from autonomous driving to games, agriculture, consumer products, and surely medical applications as well. Scientific research continues to lead innovation in this field with applications in cancer detection, acceleration of MRI exams, cell classification, and many others. In this talk, we will go through the basics of deep neural networks and check out the most recent advances in the field from LASIGE and the scientific community.
