RE•WORK will host its annual East Coast events on Deep Learning and the Internet of Things in Boston on 12 & 13 May. Over 300 machine learning and IoT enthusiasts and experts will come together to hear keynote presentations, panel discussions, fireside chats and to explore the startup showcase area.

The Deep Learning Summit brings together leaders from industry, academia and startups to explore advances in deep learning methods and techniques, as well as their business applications in areas including finance, manufacturing, healthcare & transportation. Confirmed speakers and presentations include Yoshua Bengio, Full Professor at Université de Montréal; Tony Jebara, Director of Machine Learning Research at Netflix; Vivienne Sze, Assistant Professor at MIT; Naveen Rao, CEO & Co-Founder of Nervana Systems, and more.

“Today’s models can be trained on huge quantities of data, but that’s not enough,” says Bengio, who together with LeCun and Google’s Geoffrey Hinton is one of the original musketeers of deep learning. “We need to discover learning algorithms that can take better advantage of all this unlabeled data that’s sitting out there.”

Currently, the most widely used deep-learning models — so called artificial neural networks harnessed by the likes of search giants Google and Baidu — use a combination of labeled and unlabeled data to make sense of the world. But unlabeled information far outweighs the amount people have been able to manually label, and if deep learning is to turn the corner, it must tackle areas where labeled data is scarce, including language translation and image recognition.

Why Attend

The Summits are a unique opportunity to meet and interact with CTOs, founders, data scientists, engineers, designers and industry experts leading the connected home and deep learning revolutions. Learn from and connect with over 300 innovators sharing best practices and insights to advance these emerging fields.
