Title of the Talk: Bone Tissue Characterization: From Fractals to Deep Learning


Dr. Rachid Jennane, Professor, I3MTO Laboratory, University of Orleans, France.

Abstract of the Talk:

Deep learning (DL) is providing exciting solutions for medical image analysis problems and is seen as a key method for future applications. Meanwhile, fractal analysis for the characterization of complex structures is widely used in many fields. For the characterization of the bone tissue, both approaches (Deep Learning and Fractals) have received a lot of interest. This talk will focus on the use of the fractional Brownian Motion (fBm) model and DL models for image analysis. Starting from the fBm of unique parameter H, different stochastic models are defined and discussed. DL models for bone disease classification are presented and discussed. An application of these models to osteoporosis and knee osteoarthritis diagnosis will be also presented.

Title of the Talk: Forecasting Data Center Energy Demand Using Machine Learning


Dr. G. R. Gangadharan, Associate Professor, NIT Trichy, India.

Abstract of the Talk:

Data centers evolve constantly in size, complexity, and power consumption. Energy management in data centers is a critical and challenging research issue. It becomes necessary to minimize the operational costs as well as environmental impact and to guarantee the service-level agreements for the services provided by the data centers. In this talk, we will discuss the concepts of Green data centers and applying machine learning approaches for forecasting energy consumption in data centers.

Title of the Talk: From Turing Test to the Octopus Test: Making sense of the Deep Revolution in NLP


Dr. Monojit Choudhury, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research Lab India.

Abstract of the Talk:

Natural Language Processing (NLP), or more specifically Natural Language Understanding (NLU) has been one of the holy grails of AI since its inception. In 1950, Alan Turing proposed the eponymous Turing Test as the ultimate test for AI; despite various criticisms, it has been an elusive goal for AI, and still remains one of its hardest problems. With the waves and winters of AI, NLU has also gone through interleaving times of hopes and despair. Are we any closer to solving NLU now while riding the third wave of AI fueled by the deep learning revolution? Deep learning has indeed revolutionized NLP. Accuracy numbers on many NLP tasks, such as machine translation, natural language inferencing, and question answering, has broken all the previous records by large margins. Lot of these achievements are credited to recent advances in word-embedding techniques and architectures like GPT-3. More recently, the unreasonably high success of massively multilingual zero-shot learning through “multilingual BERT”, “XLM Roberta” has left NLP researchers and linguists dumbfounded. A new field, called BERTology, has emerged that analyzes and seeks to explain the mystery behind these models. Does this mean we have solved the problem of NLU? In ACL 2020, Kohler and Bender, propose the Octopus Test, which is a thought experiment to show that none of these models actually understand natural language. In another work (Joshi et al., 2020) from our work group at MSR India, we argue that even with all these achievements, 88% of the world’s languages and 1.2 Billion speakers will have no advantage of these technologies because of the mammoth data requirements of the models. Yet another work at ACL 2020 by Riberio et al., show that state-of-the-art deep learning systems fail on many simple NLP tasks. Then where do we stand? In this talk, I will tell you this story of NLP and NLU, without any mathematical equations, and end on a high note on the possible ways of achieving this holy grail.
