Quetelet seminar: What's the big idea? Deep learning algorithms (dr. Eran Raviv)

Abstract

If there was a statistics' “word of the year” it would be two words: deep learning. Deep learning is a particular subclass of Machine Learning. In this introductory talk Dr. Eran Raviv will share, in everyday language, what actually is deep learning, and what is behind the success of deep learning algorithms. Dr. Raviv will also share few practical points of attention from his own financial-industry experience.
