Increasing stability of training of Deep CNNs with Stochastic Gradient Descent method. Application to Image classification tasks

Jenny Benois-Pineau, University of Bordeaux

Supervised learning for classification of visual data has been the major approach during the last two decades. With adventure of GPUs, the well-known supervised classifiers such as Artificial Neural Networks (ANN) came up for these problems.

Thresholding tests

Abstract:

We propose new test statistics based on lasso to test a null-hypothesis in generalized linear models. We show that under $H_0$ the test statistics are pivotal in the Gaussian case and asymptotically pivotal otherwise in the exponential family. With these new tests, the level is closer to the nominal level and the power is higher than existing tests in low and high dimension as well as for sparse and dense alternative hypotheses.

Xénologies musicales au XVIIe siècle

décembre 22, 2017

13h30 - 16h

Louvain-la-Neuve

Salle b.140 - Collège Erasme

Les Encyclopédistes du XVIIIe siècle sont connus pour avoir essentiellement pris connaissance des pratiques musicales extra-Européennes au travers de récits de voyageurs et de compte-rendus de missionnaires, parfois produits dès le siècle précédent. Or, ces sources qui ont servi de fondement au discours sur l'autre - la xénologie - des Lumières n'ont que peu, sinon pas, été discutées en tant que documents musicaux historiques.
