Understanding Deep Neural Networks

James McCaffrey (Research, Microsoft)

Location: Grand Ballroom E

Date: Wednesday, May 22

Time: 4:30pm - 5:20pm

Pass type: All Access, Conference - Get your pass now!

Track/Topic: Emerging Tech, Data & Analytics

Format: Conference Session

Vault Recording: TBD

Deep neural networks have been responsible for major breakthroughs in speech recognition (Siri & Cortana), pattern recognition (self-driving cars), and machine learning (predicting NFL football scores). In this session, Dr. James McCaffrey will explain exactly what deep neural networks are and how they work, without using Greek letters or annoying math jargon.

In this session you will learn:

  • The capabilities and limitations of deep learning
  • What you need to know to communicate effectively with subject matter experts
  • How deep learning is being used in the real world for:
  1. Natural language processing using short-term memory (LSTM) networks
  2. Fraud detection using deep neural autoencoders
  3. Symbolic reasoning using convolutional neural networks (CNN)
