About the Event

This talk surveys how deep neural networks are used in machine learning. We comment on how some of the activations can be interpreted. We also comment on how a manifold structure can be learned by recording sparse activation patterns.


John Flynn is Mike Flynn’s younger brother. He received a Ph.D. in number theory from Berkeley in 2001 and a masters in statistics from UCLA in 2013. He currently works in a research group in UCLA focusing on statistics and machine learning applied to computer vision.
