Xtrapolate 2017

Each year, Stanford ICME hosts an Xtrapolate Roundtable on a topic relevant to computational mathematics. This year, ICME Xtrapolate focused on machine and deep learning. The goal of the roundtable was to explore ways that industry, academia and government can collaborate to address challenges,
and further the field. We covered two main topics during the day:
 
  • Research and Beyond: What machine/deep learning research is being undertaken that could have major impact in the short term or longer term? Where are the early wins in industry, and what are key success factors?
     
  • Data Ethics: Machine learning algorithms and potential for bias and discrimination -- how can we overcome these challenges?  
The slides and links shared by the speakers can be found in the agenda below. Please check back soon for a summary of the discussion.
