    Talk Title: Challenges and Opportunities for Accelerating Scientific Discovery with Deep Learning

    Abstract: The successes of neural networks in computer vision and natural language processing have not easily translated into breakthroughs in other scientific domains. I will discuss some of the principles behind learning representations of data with deep learning and how we have adapted these ideas to study problems like gene expression, neuroimaging, and clinical health records. I will conclude with a speculative discussion about whether these methods can benefit domains that traditionally rely on large-scale numerical simulations like computational fluid dynamics.

    Biography: Dr. Greg Ver Steeg is a Research Lead at ISI and Research Associate Professor in USCs CS department. He has slowly transitioned from PhD research at Caltech on detecting quantum entanglement to his current work on detecting hidden variables in more diverse domains using information theory and machine learning. His work has been recognized with an AFOSR Young Investigator Award and an Amazon Research Award.
