Robust imaging by random transform-invariant convolutional neural networks

Today's paper review gets back to convolutional neural networks (CNNs) with a nice paper from chinese researchers, featured at this year Association for Computing Machinery  (ACM) Conference in The Netherlands. It proposes a new enhancement for CNNs based on a random invariant transformation of CNNs, specifically designed for spatial transformations of images. CNNs still display … Continue reading Robust imaging by random transform-invariant convolutional neural networks

Text Classification Method in Business and Political studies

Long short-term memory (LSTM) is a relatively recent technique applied in the context of artificial neural networks. But it has reached a status of fundamental component in new products for major technology companies the likes of Google, Apple or Baidu. The paper review will be about the application of LSTM on two sets of distinct … Continue reading Text Classification Method in Business and Political studies

Heidelberg Laureate Forum: a lecture with Barbara Liskov
