Palestras, Seminários, etc. do PESC/COPPE/UFRJ.
Data: Wednesday, September 18, 2013 At 14:00
Duração: 2 Horas

Yaser S. Abu-Mostafa é Professor titular da CALTECH e um dos maiores nomes em Inteligência Coputacional. Publicou recentemente o livro 'Learning From Data' que ja vendeu (em cerca de um ano) mais de 12 mil exemplares e é o número UM em machine learning na AMAZON há várias semanas (5o. mais vendido em Ciência da Computação). O curso dele de Machine Learning já foi assistido por mais de 100 mil pessoas e está entrando agora no sistema de cursos on-line do MIT.

Machine Learning in a changing environment
Yaser S. Abu-Mostafa, Caltech

Abstract: Machine Learning studies how computational systems can automatically learn to perform a desired task based on information extracted from the data. The field is one of the cornerstones of Big Data, and has wide impact on financial, medical, commercial, and scientific applications. In this talk, I will give an overview of machine learning then focus on one aspect that has become increasingly important with the explosion of recommender systems in e-commerce, as well as financial forecasting applications. This aspect is how can machine learning algorithms perform well when they are trained on data coming from one environment, then tested on data coming from a different environment.

Dr. Yaser S. Abu-Mostafa is Professor of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at the California Institute of Technology. His areas of expertise are Machine Learning and Computational Finance. He received his PhD from Caltech where he was awarded the Clauser Prize for the most original doctoral thesis, and later received the Feynman Prize for excellence in teaching. In 1987, he co-founded NIPS, the premium international conference on machine learning today. In 2005, the Hertz Foundation established the Abu-Mostafa Fellowship in his honor. He taught an online machine learning course that attracted more than 100,000 subscribers worldwide, and co-authored a textbook on machine learning that became #1 bestseller in Computer Science on Amazon. He has served as scientific advisor to several corporations and start-up companies in the US and abroad, including Citibank for 9 years.
