Recent Advances in Deep Learning

392133 Schönhuth Summer 2020 Thu 12:15-13:45 (S) in ZOOM


In this seminar we will discuss the most recent advances and successes of Deep Learning. Therefore, we will provide a brief introduction into Deep Learning itself and then further discuss the most recent techniques and methods presented by the leading research groups of the field. Each participant will review a corresponding publication and summarize its contents in a 45 minute presentation. As a guideline see the book “Dive into Deep Learning” (https://d2l.ai/), Chapters 7 and 17.

The students are supposed to form groups of three, which probably leads to 5-6 groups. (a total of 20 participants are registered) Each group should work on a scientific article and present and discuss it within a maximum of 90 minutes.
