Taxonomy of Methods for Deep Meta Learning

[unable to retrieve full-text content]This post discusses a variety of contemporary Deep Meta Learning methods, in which meta-data is manipulated to generate simulated architectures. Current meta-learning capabilities involve either support for search for architectures or networks inside networks.

Understanding Deep Learning Requires Re-thinking Generalization

[unable to retrieve full-text content]What is it that distinguishes neural networks that generalize well from those that don’t? A satisfying answer to this question would not only help to make neural networks more interpretable, but it might also lead to more principled and reliable model architecture design.

The Machine Intelligence Behind Gboard

Posted by Françoise Beaufays, Principal Scientist, Speech and Keyboard Team and Michael Riley, Principal Scientist, Speech and Languages Algorithms TeamMost people spend a significant amount of time each day using mobile-device keyboards: composing emails, texting, engaging in social media, and more. Yet, mobile keyboards are still cumbersome to handle. The average user is roughly 35% slower typing on a mobile device than on a physical keyboard. To change that, we recently provided many exciting improvements to Gboard for Android, working towards our vision of creating an intelligent mechanism that enables faster input while offering suggestions and correcting mistakes, in any language you choose.With the realization that the way a mobile keyboard translates touch inputs into text is similar to how a speech recognition system translates voice inputs into text, we leveraged our experience in Speech Recognition to pursue our vision.…

The Two Phases of Gradient Descent in Deep Learning

[unable to retrieve full-text content]In short, you reach different resting placing with different SGD algorithms. That is, different SGDs just give you differing convergence rates due to different strategies, but we do expect that they all end up at the same results!
