About the Event

The ability to see and think is essential for AI. In this talk I will give an overview of my group’s recent work that aims to make computers see more and think better. First, I will present our efforts to advance image understanding from isolated objects to rich relational semantics and from 2D to 3D. Second, I will show how to use deep learning and vector embeddings to improve automated logical reasoning.
