Description of the workshop
Most of the major advances in Deep Learning have come from supervised learning. Despite these successes, supervised learning algorithms are characterized by a major limitation: they necessitate massive amounts of carefully, and typically expensively, annotated data. This workshop will emphasis future directions beyond supervised learning such as reinforcement learning and weakly supervised learning. Such approaches require far less supervision and allow computers to learn beyond mimicking what is explicitly encoded in a large-scale set of annotations. We encourage researchers to formulate innovative learning theories, feature representations, and end-to-end vision systems based on deep learning. We also encourage new theories and processes for dealing with large scale image datasets through deep learning architectures. We are soliciting original contributions that address a wide range of theoretical and practical issues including, but not limited to:
- Large scale image and video understanding with limited annotations:
- Video classification
- Object recognition
- Object tracking
- Scene understanding
- Industrial and medical applications
- Theoretical foundations of unsupervised learning.
- Unsupervised feature learning and feature selection.
- Deep learning in mobile platforms and embedded systems.
- Advancements in semi-supervised learning and transfer learning algorithms.
- Inference and optimization.
- Applications of unsupervised learning.
- Deep learning for robotics.
- Lifelong learning.
- Reinforcement learning.
