Organizer: Jesse Davis (jdavis at cs)
Meeting Time: 4:30-5:20 pm on Wednesday
Mailing List: uw-ai at cs dot washington dot edu
Quarter: Winter 2010
Each week one person will be responsible for picking a paper for the group to read. This individual will also lead the group discussion. Everyone who attends the meeting should read the paper and contribute to the discussion.
The goal of this quarter's reading group is discuss papers on foundation and trends papers (e.g., Yoshua Bengio's overview of deep learning) and structure learning.
The discussion leader should plan on presenting a 30-35 minute overview of the paper. The presentation does not need to be formal, i.e., no slides are needed. If we are discussing a conference paper, a good tactic is for the discussion leader to ask the author of the paper for the slides from the conference talk.
