Deep Learning

We investigate deep learning, which is a way to train deep neural networks (neural networks with many layers) to solve complicated tasks. Deep neural networks are capable of translating spoken words to text, translating between languages, and recognizing objects in pictures. While deep neural networks have recently been shown to perform mind-blowing feats, they remain mostly black boxes whose inner workings we do not understand. Our research focuses on shedding light into these black boxes to understand what they learn and how they perform so well. See below for papers on how we do that.
