Talk: Creating Generalizable AI

Looks to be a good piece, I am attending,  will be available after the talk.

 August 11 Talk with Anima Anandkumar: "How to Create Generalizable AI"

Register now for the next free ACM TechTalk, "How to Create Generalizable AI," presented on Wednesday, August 11 at 2:00 PM ET/11:00 AM PT by Anima Anandkumar, Director of ML Research, NVIDIA; Bren Professor, California Institute of Technology. Michael Zeller, Head of AI Strategy & Solutions at Temasek and ACM SIGKDD Secretary/Treasurer, will moderate the questions and answers session following the talk.

Leave your comments and questions with our speaker now and any time before the live event on ACM's Discourse Page. And check out the page after the webcast for extended discussion with your peers in the computing community, as well as further resources on AI and Machine Learning.

(If you'd like to attend but can't make it to the virtual event, you still need to register to receive a recording of the TechTalk when it becomes available.)

Note: You can stream this and all ACM TechTalks on your mobile device, including smartphones and tablets.

Current deep-learning benchmarks focus on generalization on the same distribution as the training data. However, real-world applications require generalization to new, unseen scenarios, domains, and tasks. I'll present key ingredients that I believe are critical towards achieving this, including (1) compositional systems that have modular and interpretable components; (2) unsupervised learning to discover new concepts; (3) feedback mechanisms for robust inference; and (4) causal discovery and inference that capture underlying relationships and invariances. Domain knowledge and structure can help enable learning in these challenging settings. This talk is beginner-friendly and will give a high-level overview of these challenges.

Duration: 60 minutes (including audience Q&A)
