Today we’re joined by Hima Lakkaraju, an Assistant Professor at Harvard University. At CVPR, Hima was a keynote speaker at the Fair, Data-Efficient and Trusted Computer Vision Workshop, where she spoke on Understanding the Perils of Black Box Explanations. Hima talks us through her presentation, which focuses on the unreliability of explainability techniques that center perturbations, such as LIME or SHAP, as well as how attacks on these models can be carried out, and what they look like.

Invariance, Geometry and Deep Neural Networks with Pavan Turaga - #386 show art Invariance, Geometry and Deep Neural Networks with Pavan Turaga - #386

The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

We continue our CVPR coverage with today’s guest, Pavan Turaga, Associate Professor at Arizona State University. Pavan gave a keynote presentation at the Differential Geometry in CV and ML Workshop, speaking on Revisiting Invariants with Geometry and Deep Learning. We go in-depth on Pavan’s research on integrating physics-based principles into computer vision. We also discuss the context of the term “invariant,” and Pavan contextualizes this work in relation to Hinton’s similar Capsule Network res

The TWIML AI Podcast (formerly This Week in Machine Learning & Artificial Intelligence)

Today we’re joined by Andreas Madsen, an independent researcher based in Denmark. While we caught up with Andreas to discuss his ICLR spotlight paper, “Neural Arithmetic Units,” we also spend time exploring his experience as an independent researcher, discussing the difficulties of working with limited resources, the importance of finding peers to collaborate with, and tempering expectations of getting papers accepted to conferences -- something that might take a few tries to get right.

Today we’re joined by Emily M. Bender, Professor of Linguistics at the University of Washington. 

Our discussion covers a lot of ground, but centers on the question, "Is Linguistics Missing from NLP Research?" We explore if we would be making more progress, on more solid foundations, if more linguists were involved in NLP research, or is the progress we're making (e.g. with deep learning models like Transformers) just fine?

Later this afternoon (3pm PT) we’ll be hosting a viewing party with Emily over on our YouTube channel. Sam and Emily will be in the live chat answering your questions from the conversation. Register at twimlai.com/376viewing!
