2019 IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

IEEE Symposium Series on Computational Intelligence

December 6-9, 2019 Xiamen, China


IEEE Symposium on Deep Learning (IEEE DL)

Deep Learning (DL) is growing in popularity because it solves complex problems in machine learning by exploiting multi scale, multi-layer architectures making better use of the data patterns. Multi-scale machine perception tasks such as object and speech recognitions using DL have recently outperformed systems that have been under development for many years. The principles of DL, and its ability to capture multi scale representations, are very general and the technology can be applied to many other problem domains, which makes it quite attractive. Many open problems and challenges still exists, e.g. interpretability, computational and time costs, repeatability of the results, convergence, ability to learn from a very small amount of data, to evolve dynamically/continue to learn, etc. The Symposium will provide a forum for discussing new DL advances, challenges, brainstorming new solutions and directions between top scientists, researchers, professionals, practitioners and students with an interest in DL and related areas including applications to autonomous transportation, communications, medical, financial services, etc.
