Deep Learning Privacy Research Gets Google Go-Ahead

Funding, Grants & Awards Deep Learning Privacy Research Gets Google Go-Ahead By Dian Schaffhauser 09/28/15 Two professors, one from Penn State and the other at Cornell University, have received grants from Google to research privacy issues connected to “deep learning.” Deep learning is the name given to an approach for doing machine learning that represents data in multiple layers of increasing abstraction. The method can discover complex patterns in large datasets useful for making “intelligent” decisions in the real world. For example, the application of deep learning is behind search engine efforts to identify the contents of an untagged photograph so that the right kinds of images show up when a user searches on text or a particular phrase. The new grants will allow Adam Smith, an associate professor of…
