1. Jitendra Malik, Univ. Berkeley (computer vision pioneer): Scene Understanding in the Era of Deep Learning.

2. Ilya Sutskever, Google (e.g., state-of-the-art machine translation with LSTM RNNs).

3. Oriol Vinyals, Google (e.g., state-of-the-art large vocabulary speech recognition and image caption generation with LSTM RNNs).

4. Risto Miikkulainen, Univ. of Texas, Austin: Deep RL through Neuroevolution.

5. Awni Hannun, Baidu (state-of-the-art end-to-end speech recognition with RNNs).

6. Pierre Baldi: Deep RNNs in chemistry and biology.


* Workshop Registration

We have received requests to attend this workshop from a broad audience. We are therefore offering a separate registration for this workshop to be held on the afternoon of August 8, Saturday. The special registration fee for this workshop will be $200. Student registration fee will be $100. Participation is limited, and priority will go to regular conference attendees, after which attendance will be on a first come, first served basis. So register early, and let your colleagues and students know about this!

The aim of the INNS BigData conference is to promote new advances and research directions in efficient and innovative algorithmic approaches to analyzing big data (e.g. deep networks, nature-inspired and brain-inspired algorithms), implementations on different computing platforms (e.g. neuromorphic, GPUs, clouds, clusters) and applications of Big Data Analytics to solve real-world problems (e.g. weather prediction, transportation, energy management).

Please refer to our website for a more detailed list of [dates, topics, special sessions, tutorials, workshops], plus information on [deadlines, reservations, hotels, etc].
