DeepMind x UCL | Deep Learning Lectures | 3/12 | Convolutional Neural Networks for Image Recognition
In the past decade, convolutional neural networks have revolutionised computer vision. In this lecture, DeepMind Research Scientist Sander Dieleman takes a closer look at convolutional network architectures through several case studies, ranging from the early 90’s to the current state of the art. He also reviews some of the building blocks that are in common use today, discuss the challenges of training deep models, and strategies for finding effective architectures, with a focus on image recognition.

Sander Dieleman is a Research Scientist at DeepMind in London, UK, where he he has worked on the development of AlphaGo and WaveNet. He was previously a PhD student at Ghent University, where he conducted research on feature learning and deep learning techniques for learning hierarchical representations of musical audio signals. During his PhD he also developed the deep learning library Lasagne and won solo and team gold medals respectively in Kaggle’s “Galaxy Zoo” competition and the first National Data Science Bowl. In the summer of 2014, he interned at Spotify in New York, where he worked on implementing audio-based music recommendation using deep learning on an industrial scale.
About the lecture series:
The Deep Learning Lecture Series is a collaboration between DeepMind and the UCL Centre for Artificial Intelligence. Over the past decade, Deep Learning has evolved as the leading artificial intelligence paradigm providing us with the ability to learn complex functions from raw data at unprecedented accuracy and scale. Deep Learning has been applied to problems in object recognition, speech recognition, speech synthesis, forecasting, scientific computing, control and many more. The resulting applications are touching all of our lives in areas such as healthcare and medical research, human-computer interaction, communication, transport, conservation, manufacturing and many other fields of human endeavour. In recognition of this huge impact, the 2019 Turing Award, the highest honour in computing, was awarded to pioneers of Deep Learning.
In this lecture series, research scientists from leading AI research lab, DeepMind, deliver 12 lectures on an exciting selection of topics in Deep Learning, ranging from the fundamentals of training neural networks via advanced ideas around memory, attention, and generative modelling to the important topic of responsible innovation.
