Probabilistic Modeling meets Deep Learning using TensorFlow Probability

September 18, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Brian Patton (Google AI)


IDS.190 - Topics in Bayesian Modeling and Computation Speaker: Brian Patton (Google AI) Abstract: TensorFlow Probability provides a toolkit to enable researchers and practitioners to integrate uncertainty with gradient-based deep learning on modern accelerators. In this talk we'll walk through some practical problems addressed using TFP; discuss the high-level interfaces, goals, and principles of the library; and touch on some recent innovations in describing probabilistic graphical models. Time-permitting, we may touch on a couple areas of research interest for the…

Automated Data Summarization for Scalability in Bayesian Inference

September 11, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Tamara Broderick (MIT)


IDS.190 - Topics in Bayesian Modeling and Computation Abstract: Many algorithms take prohibitively long to run on modern, large datasets. But even in complex data sets, many data points may be at least partially redundant for some task of interest. So one might instead construct and use a weighted subset of the data (called a "coreset") that is much smaller than the original dataset. Typically running algorithms on a much smaller data set will take much less computing time, but…
