Can computers see?

Dario Garcia-Gasulla from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center introduced BGSE Data Science students to the Convolutional Neural Network (CNN) method of object recognition.

image recognition

Computers today have the ability to process information from images notably thanks to object recognition. This ability improved greatly over the past few years and reached human levels on complex tasks in 2015. The algorithm allowing them to do such thing is called Convolutional Neural Network (CNN). This method also enabled Google’s AI to beat one of the best GO players in the world and build self-driving cars.

This week, the Renyi Hour invited Dario Garcia-Gasulla from the Barcelona Supercomputing Center who introduced the Data Science students to this method.

Bayesian statistics applications in Physics

Data Science students had a talk with Johannes Bergstron, a Postdoctoral researcher at Universitat de Barcelona, about physics and the implications of Bayesian statistics for the field.
