Deep neural networks dominate advanced approaches to patternrecognition. Today neural networks transcribe our speech, recognize ourpets, understand linguistics and fight our trolls.Recent advances by Geoff Hinton and the introduction of capsulenetworks only ups the ante. But despite the results, we have to wonderwhy do they work so well?
In this session, Arthur Tisi, CEO and Founder of MeaningBot, will sharesome extremely remarkable results in applying deep neural networks tonatural language processing (NLP), particularly in the areas ofdetermining human traits in the areas of leadership, team building,personality, consumption preferences and more. Arthur will cite realworld examples and share some of the math and science behind theseadvances including different variants of artificial neural networks, suchas deep multilayer perceptron (MLP), convolutional neural network(CNN), recursive neural network (RNN), recurrent neural network(RNN), long short-term memory (LSTM), sequence-to-sequence model,and shallow neural networks including word2vec for word embeddings.
