BSC-CNS at NIPS2017, a top Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence conference BSC-CNS will be present at the 31th Annual Conference on Neural Information Processing Systems (NIPS 2017), a machine learning and computational neuroscience conference that includes invited talks, demonstrations and oral and poster presentations. It covers topics ranging from deep learning and computer vision to cognitive science and reinforcement learning. NIPS is one of the top Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence conferences in the world and has become the academic and industry AI conference. One paper will be presented at Machine Learning for Health workshop: "Detection-aided liver lesion segmentation using deep learning". In this paper we propose a method to segment the liver and its lesions from Computed Tomography (CT) scans using Convolutional Neural Networks (CNNs), that have proven good results in a variety of computer [...]

Informática, ¿cuál es su futuro?

Informática, ¿cuál es su futuro? La semana pasada nos visitó Oriol Vinyals  para deleitar a nuestros alumnos del curso Deep Learning for Artificial Intelligence gracias a la complicidad del Barcelona Supercomputing Center (BSC-CNS) al invitarlo a través de su programa Severo Ochoa Research Seminars. Esta vez además propusimos abrirlo a modo de meetup a todos los interesados en el tema.  Pues bien, un éxito, el auditorio de la UPC en el Vertex, acabó abarrotado, con gente en la waiting list que no pudo asistir (nuestras excusas a todos ellos).  En la presentación Oriol nos habló del AlphaGo Zero y cómo se ha convertido en el mejor jugador del mundo usando técnicas de Reinforcement Learning, Deep Learning, etc . A diferencia de sus versiones anteriores de AlphaGo en donde aprendió [...]
