    Winter 2013 Meetings
    Wednesday April 3, 2013 (5pm BA5256):
    Our final meeting of the semester will be this Wednesday April 3. The main purpose of the meeting will be to coordinate things for next year. If you're interested in getting involved in UAIG, or want to know more about that that would entail, please come out to this meeting. As usual, we'll be meeting in BA5256 at 5pm.

    Topic: Communicating with Machines: An Introduction to SPOClab
    Abstract: In this talk I introduce SPOClab (Signal Processing and Oral Communication), which bridges Computer Science at the University of Toronto with the Toronto Rehabilitation Institute. The goal of our lab is to produce software that helps to overcome challenges of communication including speech and language disorders. This will be organized into two co-dependent streams of research. First, we will embed control-theoretic models of speech production into augmented ASR systems using various machine-learning techniques. Second, these systems will be deployed in software that can be used in practice; this involves adjacent disciplines such as human-computer interaction and general natural language processing to design and study application interfaces for disabled users.

    Next year's executive
    Fellow AI enthusiasts, please email me (denton [at] cs [dot] toronto [dot] edu) if you are interested in getting involved in UAIG. It doesn't matter if you've been a regular attendee or have never come out before, if you are at all curious about what's involved in running UAIG please contact me!

    New meeting time for 2013
    This semester we will be meeting on a weekly basis on Wednesdays at 5pm in BA5256.

    Abstract: We describe an application of large convolutional neural networks to object recognition. Our network has 8 layers, 600 million connections, 60 million parameters, and 600,000 neurons, making it one of the largest neural networks ever trained. The network was trained to categorize images into 1000 lasses using the 1.2M training images of the ImageNet Large Scale Visual Recognition Challenge 2012 competition. The network was implemented on two GPUs and used a number of novel techniques to prevent overfitting. We entered a variant of this network to the ILSVRC-2012 competition and achieved a winning top-5 test error rate of 15.3%, compared to 26.2% achieved by the second-best entry. Additionally, the network's visual representation (which has 4096 dimensions) outperformed 128 neurons from the IT area of a macaque's visual cortex at a certain recognition task that causes other computer vision systems to fail.
    This is joint work with Alex Krizhevksy and Geoffrey Hinton.
