讲座题目:Creating Intelligence via Big Learning







The tremendous big data generated from natural systems, engineered systems, and life demand new capabilities in algorithms and systems to explore insights and make decisions through high performance big data platforms. To address these challenges, we propose a two-pronged solution: data-driven self-programmed big learning models and self-programmed big systems, collectively called intelligent platforms. In particular, self-programmed systems feature large-scale software-defined computing; self-programmed big learning models feature deep hierarchical learning representation and data-driven self-programming. Our preliminary prototype DeepCloud is one of the first attempts to realize such a coherently symbiotic intelligent platforms. Case studies on enabling intelligence in business, health, and science will be highlighted.
