Three principles for building more human-like learning algorithms Abstract There has been remarkable recent progress in AI and machine learning, yet many aspects of human learning still elude the best machine systems. I study computational problems that are easier for people than they are for machines. For example, people can learn a new concept from […]

Learning to see without a teacher Abstract Over the past decade, learning-based methods have driven rapid progress in computer vision. However, most such methods still require a human “teacher” in the loop. Humans provide labeled examples of target behavior, and also define the objective that the learner tries to satisfy. The way learning plays out […]

Ben Taskar Memorial Lecture Deep Reinforcement Learning for Robotics Abstract Deep learning has enabled significant advances in supervised learning problems such as speech recognition and visual recognition. Reinforcement learning provides only a weaker supervisory signal, posing additional challenges in the form of temporal credit assignment and exploration. Nevertheless, deep reinforcement learning has already enabled learning […]

Hiding the metadata in chat systems Abstract The talk will survey open problems in computer security, and discuss recent progress on communication systems that hide the metadata. We will present a recent system, called Riposte, that uses cryptographic techniques to provide anonymous Tweets for very large anonymity sets. This is joint work with Henry Corrigan-Gibbs […]

Bringing People Closer to Data Abstract Data today is everywhere. It is in spreadsheets, emails, PDF documents, corporate databases, large Hadoop clusters, and cloud data warehouses. This data has the potential to have large positive impact on how people make decisions, run their business, and tackle society’s most challenging issues. However, it is too hard […]
