Machine Learning Techniques and Applications: Past, Present and Future

Wednesday, November 27  | 9.00am – 9.45am
Auditorium 2

Machine learning is data-driven and thus application-driven technology. In this sense machine learning techniques have been developed to meet the demand of applications. I will first review current and past machine learning techniques, introducing a typical example of such tight relationships between the application requirement and learning technology development. I will then look ahead the future to shed light on possible, promising future applications, which are already gradually coming out.
