SPECIAL TOPICS- DEEP LEARNING

STA 790

The Deep Learning program is a semester-long program to be presented in the fall of 2019. The program will focus on statistical strategies for improving machine learning. There is vast interest in automated methods for complex data analysis. However, there is a lack of consideration of: (1) interpretability; (2) uncertainty quantification; (3) applications with limited training data; and (4) selection bias. Statistical methods can achieve (1)-(4) through a change in focus.
