  • NLSeminar-INFORMATION-THEORETIC PROBING WITH MINIMUM DESCRIPTION LENGTH

    Thu, Dec 03, 2020 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 PM

    Information Sciences Institute

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: Elena Voita, Univ of Edinburgh

    Talk Title: INFORMATION-THEORETIC PROBING WITH MINIMUM DESCRIPTION LENGTH

    Abstract: How can you know whether a model has learned to encode a linguistic property? The most popular approach to measure how well pretrained representations encode a linguistic property is to use the accuracy of a probing classifier (probe). However, such probes often fail to adequately reflect differences in representations, and they can show different results depending on probe hyperparameters. As an alternative to standard probing, we propose information-theoretic probing which measures minimum description length MDL of labels given representations. In addition to probe quality, the description length evaluates the amount of effort needed to achieve this quality. We show that 1 MDL can be easily evaluated on top of standard probe training pipelines, and 2 compared to standard probes, the results of MDL probing are more informative, stable, and sensible.



    Biography: Elena Voita is a Ph.D. student at the University of Edinburgh and University of Amsterdam supervised by Ivan Titov and Rico Sennrich, and is currently a Facebook PhD Fellow. Her research focuses on document level neural machine translation, as well as on understanding what and how neural models learn. Previously, she was a research scientist at Yandex Research and worked closely with the Yandex Translate team. She also teaches NLP at the Yandex School of Data Analysis.

  • Repeating EventSix Sigma Green Belt for Process Improvement

    Tue, Dec 08, 2020 @ 09:00 AM - 05:00 PM

    Executive Education

    Conferences, Lectures, & Seminars


    Speaker: IISE Faculty, IISE

    Talk Title: Six Sigma Green Belt for Process Improvement

    Abstract: USC Viterbi School of Engineering's Six Sigma Green Belt for Process Improvement, offered in partnership with the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineers, allows professionals to learn how to integrate principles of business, statistics, and engineering to achieve tangible results. Master the use of Six Sigma to quantify the critical quality issues in your company. Once the issues have been quantified, statistics can be applied to provide probabilities of success and failure. Six Sigma methods increase productivity and enhance quality. As a USC Six Sigma Green Belt, you will be equipped to support and champion a Six Sigma implementation in your organization. To earn the USC Six Sigma Green Belt Certificate, you will be required to pass the Institute of Industrial and Systems Engineer's green belt exam (administered on the final day of the course).
