Exploring optimization algorithms for recurrent neural networks (available)

Recurrent neural networks (RNNs) are a key type of architecture in modern deep learning, particularly for processing sequential data such as text, speech, video, and time series data. Unlike feedforward networks, RNNs have loops that allow information to persist and be passed from one step to the next. This enables them to effectively model patterns … full description “Exploring optimization algorithms for recurrent neural networks (available)”

Implementation of biologically inspired efficient deep learning models (available)

As deep learning models continue to grow in size and complexity to tackle increasingly difficult tasks, the need for efficient and scalable models becomes ever more important. Extremely large language models like GPT-4 require massive computational resources and expensive hardware to train and run. This makes them impractical to deploy at scale in many real-world … full description “Implementation of biologically inspired efficient deep learning models (available)”

Algorithms for lifelong deep learning (available)

Continual learning [1], also known as lifelong learning, refers to the ability of an artificial intelligence system to continuously learn and adapt from new experiences over time. This is an important capability as it allows AI models to acquire new knowledge and skills as more data becomes available, without forgetting previously learned information. Continual learning … full description “Algorithms for lifelong deep learning (available)”

AI-powered COVID-19 detection via cough sounds (available)

Respiratory diseases such as COVID-19 are known to physically damage our airway and lungs, which in turn alters the produced respiratory sounds (e.g., cough, breadth). During the pandemic, cough classification has emerged as an accessible, low-cost, and environmentally friendly COVID-19 screening alternative, needing only a smartphone to collect and process cough samples. However, audio processing … full description “AI-powered COVID-19 detection via cough sounds (available)”

Engineering ROTOR: a Refactoring Tool for OCaml (ongoing)

OCaml [1] is a mature functional programming language with an expressive type system. Recently, we have developed a prototype tool, called ROTOR, for automatically refactoring OCaml codebases [2]. Currently, ROTOR handles renaming of functions. This is surprisingly hard due to OCaml’s powerful module system: renaming a function in one module may actually require renaming functions … full description “Engineering ROTOR: a Refactoring Tool for OCaml (ongoing)”

Natural Language Understanding: Measuring the Semantic Similarity between Sentences (ongoing)

Overview To implement and design various deep neural networks for measuring the semantic similarities between sentence pairs. Background Natural language understanding (NLU) is widely viewed as a grand challenge in Artificial Intelligence (AI). An important sub-task in NLU is to measure the¬†semantic similarity between sentence pairs, also known as the Semantic Textual Similarity (STS) task.¬†A … full description “Natural Language Understanding: Measuring the Semantic Similarity between Sentences (ongoing)”
