BayLearn Symposium #ML in Menlo Park, CA.
 
BayLearn will be held October 22nd, 2015.  This is the premier Machine Learning symposium in the San Francisco Bay Area, including keynotes by Jeff Dean​, Yann LeCun​, and Trevor Darrell​. Well worth attending if you live in the area, so save the date!  We also just opened up the website for abstract submissions. I hope to see many of you there in October, and am also happy that Baidu Research is the event's main sponsor. Go to: http://www.baylearn.org/overview

Best #BigData jokes ever -  "Data is like people: interrogate it hard enough and it will tell you whatever you want to hear" :)

It could help, Ok, but I would still prefer wearing the dresses, touching the stuff and browsing a real store by myself, where neither Photoshop nor others decide for me.. :-)
 
Can deep learning help you find the perfect women?

The time that you were predetermined to marry one of the 50 girls/boys of your town is over. New technologies will continue to change the way how we find our romantic partners. Although randomness sometimes determines love, we should embrace the great opportunities in machine learning to help anyone looking for a soulmate!

can a computer learn to which girls I'm attracted? I have tried by labeling over 9K profile pictures on Tinder and using deep learning, the latest revolution in artificial intelligence. In this blog post, I will provide a high-level view how I used these techniques to predict my Tinder swipes. You can find the technical details in this paper, which was accepted for the ICML deep learning workshop.
Can deep learning help you find the perfect girl? One of the first things I did when I moved to Montreal was installing Tinder. For those of you not familiar with the online meat market, Tinder is a dating app showing nearby users you can like or dislike by their profile pictures.

How Computer Science Education Has Changed - Yes, I had assembly language, computing hardware courses, few or none practical applications, and no own computer. No, I don't want those years back... ;-)
When it comes to learning programming, some things have changed -- but not everything.

Coping With Verbal Abuse: Academic politics are vicious, but that doesn’t mean you have to be http://chronicle.com/article/Coping-With-Verbal-Abuse/231201/
Unfortunately, some people that abuse enjoy doing it and are supported in their role by others without the courage to stop them once and for all. Silence is often a confirmation and support for abuse.
Academic politics are vicious, but that doesn’t mean you have to be.

Great decision!

Trying to understand why dropout networks work so well, I was quite surprised to see that we can get principled uncertainty information from these models for free – without changing a thing.

Oh oh...
 
Google is receiving a lot of flak for accidentally tagging black people as Gorillas.  I think this was a really unfortunate mistake, and I have deep empathy for the individuals who were hurt.  But computer vision today is still in its infancy, and I think it's obvious this is an innocent rather than deliberate mistake, and just one of millions of mistakes that learning algorithms undoubtedly make every day. The tech ecosystem in Silicon Valley---including Google, Facebook, Baidu, etc.---has been among the friendliest communities I've seen in terms of striving to be inclusive.  I hope we can stop sensationalizing AI and Deep learning, and focus on making progress!
