Algorithms that learn to learn: A talk by Cody Wild

The ability to learn through experience can be considered a trait of intelligent beings. Meta learning is an exciting new research subfield with lofty ambitions to build machines that are not only able to learn but are able to learn how to learn. Meta learning has also shown promising results like state-of-the-art automated machine learning methods, new deep learning architectures, and improved one-shot learning systems. In her insightful talk, Cody Wild will give us an overview of meta learning based on her very popular blog post on this topic published last year. She will dive into the aspirations of this field, explain the mechanics of some current approaches, and answer questions on the promise as well as constraints of meta learning. Cody is a machine learning enthusiast who loves understanding the mechanisms of information inside modern models, for the purposes of implementing them in code or explaining them with just the right words. She has in the past worked as a data scientist and applied machine learning researcher in consumer finance and next-gen security, and is currently taking some time to work on independent projects and plan her next adventure. A big thank you to our venue sponsors NextSpace in Downtown Berkeley who have generously offered us their space. However, as you may recall from our past events, the space is very limited so please RSVP today to hold your spot. As always, we'll start with pizza + networking at 6p and start the event at 6.30p.
