#035 Christmas Community Edition!
Welcome to the Christmas special community edition of MLST! We discuss some recent and interesting papers from Pedro Domingos (are NNs kernel machines?), Deepmind (can NNs out-reason symbolic machines?), Anna Rodgers – When BERT Plays The Lottery, All Tickets Are Winning, Prof. Mark Bishop (even causal methods won’t deliver understanding), We also cover our favourite bits from the recent Montreal AI event run by Prof. Gary Marcus (including Rich Sutton, Danny Kahneman and Christof Koch). We respond to a reader mail on Capsule networks. Then we do a deep dive into Type Theory and Lambda Calculus with community member Alex Mattick. In the final hour we discuss inductive priors and label information density with another one of our discord community members.
Panel: Dr. Tim Scarfe, Yannic Kilcher, Alex Stenlake, Dr. Keith Duggar
