IMA Data Science Seminar - Nadav Dym
Speaker: Nadav Dym
Title: Efficient Invariant Embeddings for Universal Equivariant Learning
Abstract: In many machine learning tasks, the goal is to learn an unknown function which has some known group symmetries. Equivariant machine learning algorithms exploit this by devising architectures (=function spaces) which have these symmetries by construction. Examples include convolutional neural networks which respect the translation symmetry of images, and neural networks for graphs or sets which respect their permutation symmetries. More examples will be discussed.
