Prof Liu Inaugural lecture

Artificial intelligence is creeping into all aspects of our lives. In this talk, Professor Yonghuai Liu will shed light on the idea behind the artificial neural networks and deep learning which seeks to replicate the structure of the human brain using layered, interconnected nodes.

During his talk, Professor Liu will use examples to demonstrate how they work over data regression and classification respectively, and most importantly, how this can be applied to solve real world problems. Professor Liu hopes the audience will be inspired to take an interest in these topics and their applications with an eye to working on collaborative research projects in the future.
