History of Deep Learning
14.Key questions in this course How do we decide which problems to tackle with deep learning? Given a problem setting, how do we determine what model is best? What’s the best way to implement said model? How can we best visualize, explain, and justify our findings? How can neuroscience inspire deep learning?
15.Looking forward No class on Monday (MLK day) On Wednesday: Introduction to PyTorch HW 0: due on 1/30
16.Solution: the GPU
18.As of 1996, there were 2 huge problems with neural nets. They couldnt solve any problem that wasnt linearly separable. Solved by backpropagation and depth. Backpropagation takes forever to converge! Not enough compute power to run the model Not enough labeled data to train the neural net
19.Neurons are polarized
21.As of 1970, there was a huge problem with neural nets. They couldnt solve any problem that wasnt linearly separable.

23.The 2010s are the decade of domain applications They couldnt solve any problem that wasnt linearly separable. Backpropagation takes forever to converge! Images are too high dimensional! Convolutions reduce the number of learned weights via a prior. Encoders learn better representations of data. Variable-length problems cause gradient problems! Solved by the forget-gate. Data is rarely labeled! Addressed by DQN, SOMs. Neural nets are uninterpretable! Addressed by attention.
