Speaker: Professor Sanjeev Arora

Princeton University & Institute for Advanced Study

Tomorrow – Wednesday, April 18, 2018, 12:00-1:00pm

Location: Yale Institute for Network Science, 17 Hillhouse Avenue, 3rd floor

Abstract: This talk will be a survey of ongoing efforts and recent results to develop better theoretical understanding of deep learning, from expressiveness to optimization to generalization theory. We will see the (limited) success that has been achieved and the open questions it leads to. (My expository articles appear at

Bass 434 Zoom meetings with iPad annotation

Hi all,

Here are the instructions for setting up the iPad in Bass 434 to interface with the main screen, and to allow annotation during a Zoom meeting:

1) On both the iPad and the Mac mini, go to yale.zoom.us (the iPad has the Zoom app installed as well)

2) Click on "Join a Meeting"

3) In the box for "Join with Personal Link Name" enter (for both devices): lori.bass.434

4) Share the Mac mini screen with the meeting participants

5) On the iPad, click on the "Annotate" tool.

6) Scribble and annotate to thine heart’s content.

Note that the login times out after 24 hours, a relevant fact for those 25 hour meetings in our future.

Best wishes,

Prashant.

“The tool, described in Nature on 28 March1, is not the first software to wield artificial intelligence (AI) instead of human skill and intuition. Yet chemists hail the development as a milestone, saying that it could speed up the process of drug discovery and make organic chemistry more efficient.

“What we have seen here is that this kind of artificial intelligence can capture this expert knowledge,” says Pablo Carbonell, who designs synthesis-predicting tools at the University of Manchester, UK, and was not involved in the work. He describes the effort as “a landmark paper”.”
