AI Talk: 23/05/11 @ 13:00 in 2A08
Presenter: Christian Igel (DIKU)
Title: Towards Autonomous Machine Learning
Abstract: Machine learning algorithms are already an integral part of today's scientific computing. Despite their successes in various application domains, there are fundamental challenges that must be met if we are to develop more general learning systems. For example, present algorithms often lack autonomy in the sense that they require a human expert to tune the method and its parameters, to find an appropriate data representation, etc. The talk starts with a short primer on supervised machine learning with a focus on the role of prior knowledge for proper generalization. Application examples of machine learning techniques that offer a high degree of autonomy are presented, in particular semi-automatic model selection for support vector machines is considered.
Bio: Christian Igel studied Computer Science at the Technical University of Dortmund. He received his doctoral degree from the Faculty of Technology at Bielefeld University in 2002 and his habilitation from the Ruhr-University Bochum in 2010. From 2002 to 2010 he was a junior professor for Optimization of Adaptive Systems at the Institut für Neuroinformatik, Ruhr-University Bochum. In October 2010 Christian joined DIKU as a professor with special duties in Machine Learning. His research concerns theory and application of statistical machine learning and biologically-inspired computing.
