In this talk…

Dr. Hari Koduvely will discuss how Bayesian Inference is useful for Machine Learning. Bayesian methods allow for more accurate predictions under uncertainty and with less amount of data. When applied to very complex models such as Deep Neural Networks, they would help in automatic tuning of hyperparameters and efficient compression of the models. Dr. Koduvely will present a brief introduction to Bayesian Inference and some examples of machine learning models where Bayesian methods are used very effectively.
