SF Meetup is hosting an event at NVIDIA on October 6th, 2015 on the topic of What’s New in Deep Learning – A Talk by Baidu Researchers. Awni Hannun and Erich Elsen from Baidu Research will share some insights from their groundbreaking work at Baidu Research and its application to complex speech recognition.
Awni previously was a Stanford researcher with extensive experience in solving hard speech recognition tasks using deep learning methods. His interests also extend to computer vision, NLP and almost anything relating to AI and machine learning.
Erich, also a former Stanford researcher, has experience using GPUs in HPC and was responsible for Shazam’s core recognition algorithm running on GPUs. His current focus is on machine learning and neural networks.
This is likely to be a sold out event so please sign up quickly here – but please be thoughtful and try to attend so your seat is not wasted.
