Training Recurrent Neural Networks

Jun 07, 2019 - 9:30 am to 10:30 am

SLAC, Kavli 3rd Floor Conf. Room

Justin Myles

Join us Friday, June 7th at 9:30 am on the Kavli third floor at SLAC (and on zoom!) for the last KIPAC Stats & ML Journal Club of the quarter. Justin Myles will be leading a discussion on training Recurrent Neural Networks. Find a link to the paper and his abstract below. 

Professor Forcing: A New Algorithm for Training Recurrent Networks


We’ll discuss Professor Forcing, an algorithm for training recurrent neural networks for the purpose of sequential sampling. This network design has applications for computer-generated sequential media (where each generated datum depends on its predecessor) like computer handwriting generation.
