Deep Learning and Optimization for the Knowledge Revolution

Data Serving Canadians: Deep Learning and Optimization for the Knowledge Revolution Data-driven innovation (DDI) is a key enabler of future growth and well-being for Canadians. With data being generated and collected at ever-increasing rates, we have entered a big data era that offers tremendous opportunities for new discoveries, technologies, processes and products that will change our lives and definitely propel us into a true knowledge-based society. Campus Montréal, the alliance of the Université de Montréal, Polytechnique Montréal and HEC Montréal, is proposing a transformative and far-reaching strategy that capitalizes on the unique and synergistic combination of machine learning / deep learning and operations research—the science of optimization. Deep learning, largely pioneered and developed on campus, provides computers with quasi-human-level performance in, e.g., computer vision and speech recognition. The strategy, which…
