• What we'll do
Main Event: Zachary New will present Backpropagation applied to handwritten zip code recognition (http://yann.lecun.com/exdb/publis/pdf/lecun-89e.pdf)
The ability of learning networks to generalize can be greatly enhanced by providing constraints from the task domain. This paper demonstrates how such constraints can be integrated into a backpropagation network through the architecture of the network. This approach has been successfully applied to the recognition of handwritten zip code digits provided by the U.S. Postal Service. A single network learns the entire recognition operation, going from the normalized image of the character to the final classification.
• Important to know
Big ups to Create33 and Vanessa for hosting this month!
As a chapter of Papers We Love we abide by and enforce the PWL Code of Conduct (https://github.com/papers-we-love/seattle/blob/master/code-of-conduct.md) at our events. Please give it a read, plan on acting like an adult, and involve one of the organizers if you need help.
Stop slacking and join us in the #seattle channel at https://papersweloveslack.herokuapp.com!
If you have a paper you'd like to present, or even just a mini, please hit up one of the organizers :) We're always looking for more presenters.
