Deep Learning INDABA
9th -14th September 2018, Stellenbosch University, South Africa
Abstract: In this lecture I will give a broad overview of convolutional networks and their applications. I will start with a recap of convolutional and cross-correlational operators and their variants, before covering how they are incorporated into neural networks. A discussion of methods for probing and interpreting convolutional networks will follow and I will conclude by sampling a few of the many convolutional models used today across a wide variety of applications, including those in vision, speech, text and social networks.
