Embodied Question Answering

Embodied Question Answering is a new AI task where an agent is spawned at a random location in a 3D environment and asked a question ("What color is the car?"). In order to answer, the agent must first intelligently navigate to explore the environment, gather information through first-person (egocentric) vision, and then answer the question ("orange").

Visualizing Deep Learning Models at Facebook

This post summarizes the latest joint research between researchers at Georgia Tech and  Facebook on using visualization to make sense of deep learning models, published at IEEE VIS’17, a top visualization conference. While powerful deep learning models have significantly improved prediction accuracy, understanding these models remains a big challenge. Deep learning models are more difficult … Continue reading Visualizing Deep Learning Models at Facebook

Syntax-Directed Variational Autoencoder for Structured Data

Advances in deep learning of representation have resulted in powerful generative approaches on modeling continuous data like time series and images, but it is still challenging to correctly deal with discrete structured data, such as chemical molecules and computer programs. To tackle these challenges, there has been many improvements in formalization of structure generation that … Continue reading Syntax-Directed Variational Autoencoder for Structured Data

ICLR 2018 accepted papers and ML@GT

The list of accepted papers at ICLR 2018 was released last week and Machine Learning at Georgia Tech (ML@GT) had a strong presence.
