Maths 4DL Deep Learning for Industry Workshop

Maths4DL are running a short brainstorming meeting in January for companies and academics interested in the applications of deep learning. This will be at the University of Bath on 19-20th January 2023.

Machine learning, in particular Deep Learning (DL) based on ‘neural
networks’, is one of the fastest growing areas of modern science and
technology, which has potentially an enormous and transformative
impact on all areas of our lives. The applications of DL embrace many
disciplines such as biomedical sciences, computer vision, the physical
sciences, the environmental sciences, the social sciences, speech
recognition, gaming, music and finance.

However, alongside this explosive growth has been a concern about the
lack of understanding behind DL and the way that DL based algorithms
make their decisions. This leads to a lack of trustworthiness in the use of
some of these algorithms. A reason for this is that the huge successes of
Deep Learning are not all well understood, the results are sometimes
mysterious, and there is often a lack of a clear link between the data
training DL algorithms, and the decisions made by those algorithms.
Despite this, there is enormous potential for the use of DL in industry if
used with care and understanding.

This meeting will be a two day brainstorming/study group meeting aimed at
industries, and other bodies, that want to know more about how deep
learning can impact on them, and its strengths and limitations. It will be a
mixture of tutorial presentations about deep learning, industrial
presentations, and problem solving sessions. Each industry representative
coming will be invited to give a short presentation about areas of their work in
which they believe that deep learning can make an impact. There will then be
a series of breakout sessions between the industrialists, academics and
students working in deep learning, exploring the issues and problems raised
by the presentations.

The meeting is aimed both at industrialists who want to learn more about
deep learning, and academics working in the field who want to make more
contacts with industry. To encourage collaborations, there will be significant
time for interaction and networking.
