Deep Learning Methodologies and Their Applications in Computational and Cognitive Engineering


In the era of artificial intelligence (AI), traditional computational and cognitive systems are being transformed into intelligent AI systems. Among various machine learning methodologies, deep learning is leading this advancement of various AI systems. In this presentation, the basic principles of major deep learning methodologies such as convolutional neural networks, recurrent neural networks, auto-encoders, and reinforcement learning will be briefly introduced. Then their applications in computational and cognitive engineering will be presented including biomedical computer-aided diagnostic systems (CAD), human activity recognition in life care systems, and humanoid robotics for natural object manipulation. About: Tae-Seong Kim received the B.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Southern California (USC) in 1991, M.S. degrees in Biomedical and Electrical Engineering from USC in 1993 and 1998 respectively, and Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering from USC in 1999. After his postdoctoral work in Cognitive Sciences at the University of California at Irvine in 2000, he joined the Alfred E. Mann Institute for Biomedical Engineering and Dept. of Biomedical Engineering at USC as Research Scientist and Research Assistant Professor.
