PhD positions in deep machine learning

These positions are funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, and the candidates will be doctoral students at EPFL. Research will be conducted in the Computer Vision and Learning group at the Idiap research institute, under the supervision of Dr. François Fleuret.* SummaryLarge neural networks demonstrate excellent performances for applications such as image classification, object detection, speech processing, and natural language processing. They are currently the standard machine-learning tool to deal with such problems when large training sets are available.Two key issues remain. The first is the computational effort during training which is often the limiting factor in practice. The second is the need for a careful design of the architecture, for which very few heuristics exist. The two lines of research we will pursue aim at addressing the first…
