Abstract: I will give a short introduction to deep learning with historical perspective. Most of the talk will be dedicated to showing the latest examples in image processing, text understanding, and other applications. I will conclude with pointers to architectures, frameworks, hardware and references.

Target audience: This is an introductory non-technical talk intended for non-pros (programmers or researchers not working with deep learning).

Bio: Dr. Eyal Gruss is a machine learning researcher and consultant, with experience in algotrading, cybersecurity, chemometry, adtech and NLP. Eyal is a Talpiot graduate and did his PhD in theoretical physics. He is also a digital artist, creating interactive installations and computer generated art.

Sponsor: In 2016, Satellogic will be launching its constellation of mass-produced imaging satellites, and begin to collect the largest up-to date dataset of high-resolution images of the planet. We are looking for Deep Learning researchers and practitioners to help us derive value from this data and disrupt the industry by transforming space-based imaging and data into an accessible part of responsible daily decision-making for any business.
