Deep learning has transformed the artificial intelligence field and has led to significant advances in areas including speech recognition, computer vision and robotics.However, deep learning methods require large datasets, which aren’t readily available in areas such as medical imaging and robotics.
She has developed some of the most effective methods to teach robots skills to control and manipulate objects.
In one instance highlighted in her dissertation, she used her MAML methods to teach a robot reaching and placing skills, using raw camera pixels from just a single human demonstration.
He introduces significant advances in proving convergence of nonconvex optimization algorithms in machine learning, and outlines properties of machine learning models trained via such methods.
In the first part of his thesis, Ma studies a range of problems, such as matrix completion, sparse coding, simplified neural networks, and learning linear dynamical systems, and formalizes clear and natural conditions under which one can design provable correct and efficient optimization algorithms.
Presented annually to the author(s) of the best doctoral dissertation(s) in computer science and engineering.
