The Magic of Unsupervised Learning: Teaching an AI to Understand Our World

YOW! Data 2019

No doubt that AI is the new kids on the block. From as simple as classifying hot-dog vs not hot-dog, recognising flower species and going towards science fiction realm in generating fake videos.

This talk will cover the problem with supervised learning which is what most of current AI technologies are based on and what is the promising trend towards the future of AI with unsupervised learning. As a use case, we will cover how image generation techniques such as Variational Auto-encoder extract knowledge from images in an unsupervised manner.
